The Department of Cinema Studies at the University of Oregon is a community of scholars, practitioners, and staff dedicated to providing students with a well-rounded study of cinema—a term that we use to encompass film, television, and/or emerging forms of media. Cinema Studies at UO is a growing department in the Humanities that is committed to interdisciplinarity and diversity that spans both global communities and marginalized U.S. social identities. The major blends cinema history, theory, aesthetics, and digital production with courses that span the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Design, and the School of Journalism and Communication. The department supports a computer lab and an equipment room in the Knight Library.
The Cinema Studies Department at the University of Oregon is seeking qualified applicants for its open instructor pool.

In limited circumstances, there is the possibility of renewal beyond three years based on departmental need, funding, and performance.
• An MFA or PhD in a field related to Cinema Studies (e.g., Film/Media Studies, English, Journalism, Mass Communication)
• In exceptional circumstances, when staffing production courses, a bachelor's degree with two years of professional production experience and/or strong pedagogical training in a related field may substitute for an advanced degree
• College-level teaching experience appropriate to the needs of the department
• Demonstrated attention to the barriers that can prevent full participation of underrepresented groups in higher education and/or in media industries
