Teaching in Social Work

We are always looking for strong instructors to help us train future social workers at Chico State.  We hire part-time faculty (also called lecturers) each semester to teach at the BSW and MSW levels. This includes field seminars in which full time and adjunct faculty serve as field liaisons with the agencies who host our students. 

See the University Catalog(opens in new window) for a list and description of all of our course offerings.

For almost all of our courses a minimum of a Masters of Social Work degree is required. A PhD is preferred.  For some courses, an exception may be made for someone who possess a degree in a related/relevant field.  In addition, candidates must have a minimum of two years post-MSW degree social work professional experience.  Experience teaching is a plus.
