Our locations-in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; London; Portland, Maine; San Francisco; Seattle; Silicon Valley; Toronto; Vancouver; and the Massachusetts communities of Burlington and Nahant-are nodes in our growing global university system. Through this network, we expand opportunities for flexible, student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focused research.
Northeastern's comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs- in a variety of on-campus and online formats-lead to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Among these, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degrees designed to prepare students for purposeful lives and careers.
About the Opportunity: The Department of Sociology and Anthropology seeks a part-time instructor to teach a class on Current Issues in Cities and Suburbs in the spring 2022 semester in Northeastern's undergraduate program on the Seattle campus. This course is part of a program called Semester in Seattle: Urban Health in Local Communities and Global Contexts. The program takes the city as an urban laboratory to understand how health care and healthcare policies can address disparities and improve health in both local and global contexts. Students will take courses and engage in local cultural and co-curricular activities. The successful candidate will be teaching the inaugural cohort of undergraduate students studying away from Boston at our campus in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle and will help us shape the program.
