Online University looking for Adjunct Faculty

Post Posted: Thu Feb 16, 2012 12:25 pm

An institution dedicated to teaching primarily military personnel is looking to add adjunct faculty for their forensic specialization. If you have a Master's degree and are interested in doing online teaching, please let me know and I will forward additional information. The courses run over an 8 week period with about 25 students per class.

Good luck on your search dbarrett.

I've never quite understood the needing a Masters degree to teach. I understand some colleges require it, some states require it, but to even require it is what I find just downright weird.

I'm going over the list of people I personally know who are incredibly good in this field, and 0 have Masters Degrees.

I agree with armresl.

My experience with Master's and PhD forensic science "experts" in the academic circles is abysmal.

While I do agree that there are many well qualified individuals that do not have a degree, academic accreditation bodies require a certain level of education in order to teach in a program. It is more of an accreditation requirement than a university one.

People without any degree can become a forensic expert, in fact they may even know more things from experience. But are you guys telling that someone who puts 2 years of dedication, time, money and hard work to earn a Masters Degree is a waste? Not every one can earn a Masters Degree.

If Encase or FTK was freely available and along with Google search any one can become a forensic expert within months, but they won't get a Masters Degree.

In my personal experience, Master's degree is of little value as far as knowledge and experience goes - and this personal observation goes across most technically oriented Master's degree. (I do not believe this holds true in business or liberal arts.)

PhD, on the other hand is something I will definitely pursue when I am too old to get up or stay late to make that midnight collection. Problem with a PhD, in my opinion is the extreme specialization.

I think, although one can select a PhD research that is horizontal in nature (cuts across multiple forensic science disciplines), it would still require a niche expertise. Of course, in case of a vertical one it is obvious the expertise would be in that vertical niche.

Now, all that said, a CV with a Master's degree will definitely 'look better', than one without.

Finally, real education, any sort of real education is beneficial.
