MFA in Photography or other terminal degree in relevant field required. Prior experience in university-level teaching and an exhibition record that reflects commitment to and continued involvement with the photographic medium, as well as the potential to develop and grow the Photography area, strongly desired.

Annual Appointed faculty are hired as Instructors focused on teaching and learning. Faculty hired in the Professional Path focus on teaching, learning and service. After six years of exemplary performance, they may promote through faculty ranks and may become eligible for multi-year contracts. Tenure-Track faculty focus on teaching and learning, scholarship, and service as well.
