The Center for American Studies at SDU features B.A. and M.A. degree options, as well as a Ph.D. for selected students. The scholar will teach two M.A. or upper-level BA courses/seminars each term. The specific courses will be negotiated with the successful applicant depending on their field of specialization. In other words, the scholar will teach in the general area of his/her expertise..

Number of meeting hours per week: five to six (usually three to four at the M.A. level). The average course size varies according to level: Graduate-level courses include up to 50 students. The chair will receive help with grading.

The scholar will also be asked to give at least one public lecture and may be asked to assist in advising M.A. students and examining Ph.D. students in the areas of his/her specialization if time permits. Additionally the scholar may be asked to join in talks regarding curriculum development.
