Faculty Employment Opportunities

Full-time Positions

Program Director, MA in Critical and Historical Craft Studies

Warren Wilson College seeks applicants for a Program Director of a new, low residency MA in critical and historical craft studies. This is a full-time faculty position scheduled to begin July 1, 2017.

The development of a low residency MA in critical and historical craft studies is the outcome of a three-year campus-wide craft initiative at Warren Wilson College (WWC) in collaboration with The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD). In June 2016 the two organizations held a Craft Think Tank that convened a group of national and regional thought-leaders to discuss and make recommendations concerning the content, format, approach, audience, and resources needed to create a relevant and successful graduate program. These stakeholders determined that there is indeed a need and a niche for a new master’s program at Warren Wilson College. In a post-event survey, participants articulated how the creation of a low-residency MA in critical and historical craft studies would “further shape the field of craft as a legitimate topic of scholarly inquiry,” “appeal to artists and makers as well as scholars,” and “give access to graduate education to some who cannot enroll in a graduate program full time.” Set to launch in Summer 2018, this will be the first master’s level degree in critical and historical craft studies in the United States.

For more information about this position, please read the job description.

Warren Wilson College is an independent, accredited, top-tier liberal arts college located on a beautiful 1135-acre campus in the Blue Ridge Mountains on the edge of Asheville, North Carolina. Founded in 1894 as the Asheville Farm School, it awards Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science Degrees in a variety of disciplines and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing. It is one of seven work colleges in the nation, where all residential students have a work assignment on campus as part of the educational program. Our campus work program provides opportunities for students to engage in experiences that apply the concepts they are learning in the classroom. Our three craft crews focused on wood, metal and fiber are excellent avenues for this applied learning. Paired with the study of studio art and craft, or complementary to majors in the sciences or humanities, students learn from professional practitioners about the design and production of fine craft.

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a list of three professional references with both phone and email contact information to hr@warren-wilson.edu. Electronic submission is required. Priority deadline for submissions is March 15, 2017.
