Adjunct Undergraduate Faculty (Day)

Each semester, the university hires adjunct faculty members to teach additional sections of courses in the departments. The number of adjuncts each semester is based on need. 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/.
