Adjuncts typically have completed  a master’s degree in their field ofspecialization although many have doctorates. For some areas of specialization such as nursing and industrial technology, undergraduate adjuncts may have a bachelor’s degree and relevant experience. Faculty who teach three consecutive semesters at the university are identified as unit members under the contract. Since the catalog is posted to the website once a year, the list of adjunct faculty teaching in a given semester will be posted on the Academic Affairs website at www.fitchburgstate.edu/offices/academic-offices/academic-affairs/part-time-day-faculty/.
