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.

Overview

Saint Mary's College seeks to hire a per-course adjunct faculty member to teach KINES 395 Internship (0.50 workload) in the Graduate Kinesiology Program in Spring 2020 (February 10 -May 21, 2020).

This course meets as a class two to three times during the semester as determined by the instructor. Additionally, the instructor meets one-on-one with students regularly. Students complete coursework using the College's on-line learning management system (Moodle) as well as a predetermined number of hours at their internship placement site.

The Master of Arts in Kinesiology program at Saint Mary's College focuses on the study of human beings engaged in physical activity. It is designed to ensure that graduate students are exposed to the breadth and depth of classical and contemporary knowledge in the component areas of the field while taking advantage of the finest things about Saint Mary's College (e.g., an interest in the student as a person and an emphasis on shared inquiry and critical thinking). Students select a concentration that fits best with their personal and professional goals: Sport Studies, Sport Management, or Fitness Management, and complete the program in 14 to 26 months.

Consistent with Saint Mary's College's commitment to inclusive excellence, the Kinesiology Department strives to be an inclusive community that fosters respect and belonging for faculty and students of diverse backgrounds and identities. We seek an applicant who can engage, advocate for, and support students of color, women, and underrepresented groups.

Responsibilities

This course provides students the opportunity to complete fieldwork in an area of interest that is in line with the department's mission and student's professional interests. The course requires students to directly apply the knowledge acquired in the academic classroom within the appropriate professional setting. Through this application students are then able to develop new practical skills based on their existing theoretical framework. They are also able to identify personal strengths that will ultimately guide them into specialized fields within the profession such as marketing, media relations, recreation management, strength and conditioning, etc. Finally, it provides students the opportunity to enhance the professional network so essential for access to and movement within the Kinesiology professions.

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to: Evaluate probable career paths; Describe the qualifications, specific job requirements, and working conditions for the positions in their career path; Compare knowledge learned in the classroom to its application in the field; Understand the need for flexibility and creativity in the application of knowledge; Initiate the development of a personal, professional network; Apply basic concepts to appropriate problems in the work setting; Develop a better understanding of the work ethic and skills required for success in the field.

The instructor hired to teach this course is also responsible for helping students to enroll in it through an on-line petition process.

Qualifications:
The successful candidate will hold a terminal degree in Kinesiology or a closely related field and have a recent publication record in the field, or a Master's degree in Kinesiology or a closely related field and have at least five years of current, relevant professional experience.
