Antioch University is seeking a full-time Core Faculty to teach in the Master of Arts in Psychology (MAP) Program. The Master of Arts in Psychology Program in Southern California is part of the Division of Applied Psychology in the Graduate School of Counseling, Psychology, and Therapy—the largest and fastest growing school in the Antioch University system.
The MAP curriculum is infused with social justice as a foundational frame, while practical experience and self-reflection provide context to support the development of well-rounded practitioners. Our curriculum meets all educational requirements for students to qualify for application as Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT) with the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. Students may also choose to qualify as Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCC). Currently, our students in the MAP program choose specializations in Addiction and Recovery, Psychological Trauma Studies, Spiritual and Depth Psychology, LGBT Affirmative Psychology, Professional Clinical Counseling, Child Studies, Applied Community Psychology, and General Practice Specialization.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
Core faculty members have responsibility in all four areas of faculty engagement including student learning, scholarship, service, and institutional citizenship. The percent of time devoted to each area varies with unit needs, and individual skills and capacities, and stage of career. Early-career core faculty members will be provided with guidance from experienced faculty members.
Core faculty report to the Chair of the MAP Program and teach 24 units over the academic year. Student advising requires knowledge of Antioch policies and a quarterly review of student advisees’ academic records and progress. Student advising also requires availability during regular office hours and timely response to students by email, telephone or Zoom.
A core faculty member will be asked to serve on program and university committees and is expected to participate in the work of the faculty, including developing the MAP curriculum and ensuring the quality of the curriculum and instruction to meet program, specialization, and California MFT licensure requirements.
