Saint Mary's College-California

Moraga, California

United States


Detailed Job Description

Founded in 1863, Saint Mary's is a residential campus nestled 20 miles east of San Francisco in the picturesque Moraga Valley. Based in the Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts traditions, Saint Mary's currently enrolls more than 4,000 students from diverse backgrounds in undergraduate and graduate programs. The De La Salle Christian Brothers, the largest teaching order of the Roman Catholic Church, guide the spiritual and academic character of the College.

As a comprehensive and independent institution, Saint Mary’s offers undergraduate and graduate programs integrating liberal and professional education. Saint Mary’s reputation for excellence, innovation and responsiveness in education stems from its vibrant heritage as a Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts institution. An outstanding, committed faculty and staff that value shared inquiry, integrative learning and student interaction bring these traditions to life in the 21st century. The College is committed to the educational benefits of diversity.

The Collegiate Seminar program is a required 4-semester sequence with one course in each of the four undergraduate years.  An introductory freshman seminar that focuses on short texts and introduces discussion (shared inquiry) and interpretive writing is followed by two chronological courses in the western tradition. The sequence concludes with a course on 20th century problems from a global perspective, including a capstone component.

January Term, unique to Saint Mary’s, showcases intensive courses that engage students and faculty in courses whose contents and pedagogies depart from the constraints of the regular curriculum.  Each January Term is organized around a central theme, chosen by the community; courses are selected anew each year in a program of courses designed to stimulate the imagination while experimenting with both subject matter and technique.

Note: Up to 3 appointments may be made.
