Communications and Digital Media

North Central University  Mission Statement

North Central University is a Christ-centered, Bible-based, Pentecostal school with a commitment to academic excellence that prepares students to fulfill Biblical models of leadership and ministry throughout the world. Eph. 4:11-12

Position Purpose

A growing – and nationally recognized – Digital Media and Communications department is seeking adjuncts with professional or academic expertise to support our courses in video production, web design, graphic design, and digital media theory. This is a unique opportunity to join our local, state, and national network of scholars, artists, educators, and students working on cross-cultural solutions to digital ethics, including algorithmic discrimination, privacy, and post-COVID public health. (Background in these areas of digital ethics is not required.)

Interested parties are welcome to apply for single courses, as a generalist interested in teaching multiple courses, or as a faculty content specialist (helping to design online courses but not teach). Priority will be given to applicants coming from backgrounds woefully under-represented in the field of digital media. While North Central University is returning to face-to-face instruction in the fall, hybrid and fully online options are available for qualified applicants.

  • Advanced Video Post-Production (Fall 2020)
  • Intro to Digital Media (Fall 2020)

  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work as a team member.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
  • Deep commitment to team development.
  • Effective pedagogical practices, with an ongoing willingness to grow and develop.
  • All teaching faculty members are expected to be committed Christians, model a consistent Spirit-filled life, and be considerate of the Fundamental Truths of the Assemblies of God.
