University Teaching

LCC International University (LCC) provides a liberal arts education, with the goal of teaching students to think critically so they can contribute to the development of their society and culture. At LCC, faculty members seek to equip students by exposing them to rigorous academic study, caring relationships and committed Christian faith. This combination of thoughtful education and genuine relationships brings about change in the lives of LCC students. They learn trust and tolerance, two essential skills that will help them rebuild their communities.

Academic Program

All students take courses that cover the central subject areas of a liberal arts education. Currently, LCC offers six majors: International Business Administration, English Language and Literature, Psychology, Contemporary Communication, International Relations and Development, and Theology. LCC also offers ten modules outside major: Business Studies, Information and Communication Technology, Translation and Interpretation, Psychology for Effective Leadership, Psychology, Conflict Transformation, Christian Studies, Philosophy, Lithuanian Studies and Lithuanian as a Foreign Language. Some core courses and electives are also drawn from the General Studies department. Semesters last sixteen weeks, with fourteen weeks for classes, one week for final exams, and a one-week semester break. Classes meet for 60 minutes, three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) or 90 minutes, two days a week (Tuesday, Thursday).

Classroom Environment

While faculty may present some course material by means of lectures, classes are interactive, and foster the expression of students’ thoughts and viewpoints. An interactive classroom moves education beyond the mere transfer of information, and puts an emphasis upon intellectual inquiry, critical thinking and communication.

Responsibilities

There are about 50 faculty at LCC, mostly from North America, but also from Lithuania and other countries. All together, they teach approximately 80 courses a year. Individual workloads depend on class sizes, preparation and marking responsibilities. Most faculty teach three to four class sections per semester. In addition to teaching, faculty meet regularly with their department, advise fourth-year thesis students, develop and grade comprehensive exams, and sit on various faculty committees. LCC is committed to educating and equipping students through relationship. To create and foster relationships beyond the classroom, we encourage faculty to involve themselves in extracurricular activities such as chapels, mentoring programs and recreational activities.

Qualifications

LCC is looking for faculty who want to facilitate the rebuilding of civil society in Eastern Europe. Faculty should be comfortable with an interactive teaching style that promotes critical thinking. They should also be committed to supporting and empowering students, both in the classroom and in relationships outside the formal teaching arena. Faculty must have a minimum of an MA, and preferably a PhD, in their teaching area. There are some opportunities for people with bachelor degrees to work as faculty assistants.

Date & Length Options

Assignments range from seven weeks, to one semester, to one year, to several years. Fall semester classes run from mid-August to Christmas, while spring semester classes run from early January to mid-May. All expatriate faculty begin their semester at LCC with a few days of orientation. If you are not able to come for this long, explore our shorter summer assignments.
