USC defines two categories of appointment for faculty working less than
fulltime. These are “adjunct” and “part-time.” The difference in the
categories is primarily based on the nature of a faculty member's professional
work outside of teaching at USC.
Definition of Adjunct Faculty
USC reserves the “Adjunct Faculty” appointment for faculty teaching less than
full-time at USC , who are employed full-time in a primary profession or
career elsewhere. Adjunct faculty typically teach only one course per year
but, in exceptional cases, may teach one course per semester, if approved by
the dean. For example, a full-time freelance artist, a lawyer employed full-
time at a firm, a pharmacist employed full-time by a pharmacy, or a
consultant/entrepreneur/CFO who teaches 1-2 classes a year for USC would be
considered an adjunct faculty member. A retired person who considers
themselves fully retired, but teaches 1-2 classes a year for USC, could be
considered Adjunct Faculty or Part-time Faculty.
Definition of Part-time Faculty
USC reserves the “Part-time Faculty” appointment for faculty teaching less
than full-time who are not employed full-time in a primary position or
career elsewhere. For example, a therapist with a part-time private
practice, a musician who books performances on what they consider to be a
part-time basis, a biologist who has a part-time job in a lab, or someone
retired from a career who teaches less than full-time at USC could be
considered “Part-time Faculty.” Part-time Faculty under this definition may
teach a maximum of 3 courses per semester, and we hope to limit that to 2
courses per semester as full-time faculty numbers increase.
Areas of anticipated teaching needs include topics in taxation including
corporate taxation; provisions (income tax accounting and auditing); tax
accounting methods; mergers and acquisitions (advanced corporate tax); and
Preferred qualifications for non-tenure track and part-time positions include
an advanced degree (masters, Ph.D., J.D., etc.), relevant experience
teaching at the college/university level, practical experience in professional
accounting or taxation, and superior communication skills. Preference may be
given to applicants who have completed the AACSB Bridge Teaching Program.
Qualified candidates should submit on-line a letter of application and a
resume or CV. Please indicate in letter any preferences or limitations for
teaching evening courses, daytime courses, on-campus courses, and online
