The Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California seeks a highly qualified adjunct instructor to teach a graduate seminar called JOUR 547: Navigating the Media Marketplace. This course provides students the theoretical and practical framework to analyze the news media business, its competitive position and its financial prospects. Students should also leave with a set of tools and strategies meant to help them deal with issues and situations that may arise in newsrooms around topics such as a race, diversity, gender and inclusion. With this in mind, the instructor should prepare students to think critically and creatively about the role they want to occupy in the journalism/media industry and how to best prepare for it.Â
The class will start on August 30, 2019, and end on December 13, 2019. Applicants must be available Fridays from 2-4 p.m. Requirements for consideration include a minimum of B.A. or B.S. Previous teaching experience is desirable. Outstanding professional experience may be substituted for academic credentials. Applicants should send a letter describing their background, interests, and areas of expertise, and an up-to-date resume or curriculum vitae through USCâs job site.
