Sias University offers a variety of academic courses, taught primarily through two departments: the School of Foreign Languages and School of Business (the School of International Education is a separate program offered through Fort Hays State University).
Academic teachers prepare lectures and discussions for classes of 60 students on average, and multimedia classrooms are assigned for these courses. The full-time teaching load for academics is 12 class hours a week, providing ample time for preparation and meeting with students. Textbooks and other resources, including supervision, are provided.
Applicants with corresponding degrees, teaching experience, or work experience in an academic course discipline will be considered for openings.
We will not have confirmed openings for Fall until late April, but we can discuss course options in an interview with you.
