Instructor Certification Requirements:

There are two faculty ranks associated with UConn ECE Anthropology: Preceptor and Instructor. Both faculty ranks have the potential for teaching Anthropology. The role of UConn ECE Anthropology Instructor and Preceptor differ in the levels of independence determined by the University’s Faculty Coordinator in Anthropology.

The minimum requirement for teachers wishing to become a UConn ECE Anthropology Preceptor is a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology or a closely related subject area, a master’s degree from an accredited university/college (e.g., Education or related academic discipline), and successfully completing UConn’s ANTH 1000 (online) course with the grade of B+ or higher.

The minimum requirement for teachers wishing to become a UConn ECE Anthropology Instructor (which is educationally equivalent to an adjunct professor at the University) is a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and a master’s degree in Anthropology with evidence of a high-level of content mastery. Applicants are required to review (not completely enroll and take) the online ANTH 1000 course to get a sense of the department’s approach and include a 1-page document detailing the approach they plan to use in their class.

Applicants may be asked for a phone interview.
