Homework


This is the VOA Special English Education Report.



Not every who teaches in the college or university, is a professor. Many are instructors or lecturers. In fact, not even all professors are full professors. Many of them are assistant, or associate professors, or adjunct professors. So what do all of these different academic titles mean at American colleges and universities?



Get ready for a short lecture, especially if you are thinking of career in higher education?



Professors usually need a doctor degree. But sometimes a school will offer positions to peole who are not yet receive their doctorate. These person would called an instructor until the degree has been completed. After that the instructor could become an assistant professor.



Assistant professor do not have tenure. Tenure means a permanent oappointment. This goal of greater job security is harder to reach these days. Few teaching position offer the chance for tenure. Teachers and researchers who are higher into positions that do offer it are side to be on the tanure track. Assistant professor is the first job on this path.



Assistant professor generally have 5 to 7 years to gain tenure. During this time, other faculty members study the person's work. If tenure is denied, then the assistant professor usually has a year to find other job. Candidates for professor may feel great pressure to get research published. Publish or parish is the traditional seeing.



An assistant professor who receives tenure becomes an associate professor. An associate professor may later appointed a full professor. Assistant, associate and full professors perform many duties. They teach classes, they advice students, and they carry out research. They also serve on committees and take part in other activity. Other faculty members are not expected to do all this jobs. They are not on a tenure track. Instead, they might be adjunct or visiting positions. A waiting professor has a job at one school, but works another for a period of time. An adjunct professor is also a limited or part time position to do research or teach classes. Adjunct professors have a doctorate.



Other position is that of lecturer. Lecturers teach classes, but they may or may not have a doctorate.
