Professor of Cinema Studies

Description

SCAD seeks a Professor of Cinema Studies for its Atlanta location to provide students with the expertise needed to investigate and explain the complex relationships between context, culture, and film.

SCAD students navigate historical and contemporary film through critical analysis of the earliest cinematic breakthroughs and social transformations during the past century to the revolution of today’s cinematic experiences. In cinema studies coursework, students gain a curiosity for creative inquiry, critical thinking, and visual analysis.

These skills propel undergraduate students into major-specific disciplines while graduate students prepare for robust careers as critics, reviewers, journalists, artists, and entrepreneurs.

Working with the university’s community of diverse and highly credentialed faculty, the ideal candidate has the ability to motivate students to think creatively and critically in an active and engaging learning environment.

One of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., Atlanta provides professionals an ideal environment to live, work, and play. Located in the heart of Midtown, SCAD Atlanta is home to a dynamic cultural landscape that includes excellent dining, theaters, museums, and fine art galleries, plus bustling shops and countless green spaces, including Piedmont Park and Atlanta’s famed Beltline. The capital of the New South, Atlanta provides both southern charm and the dynamism of an alpha city.
