UGA Cortona Faculty Opportunities


Faculty Opportunities - Application Process

General Critieria for Faculty Positions
The following considerations are utilized in making faculty appointments for spring, summer and fall semesters:

  • The University of Georgia faculty has priority for teaching positions. Should no University of Georgia faculty member be interested in a particular semester, we will review applications from outside the University of Georgia for teaching appointments.
  • Appointments are usually made to faculty who hold the terminal degree in their field and have been teaching full-time at the university level at least three to five years.
  • Previous travel in Italy or participation in a studies abroad program can be an important consideration for assigning the varied responsibilities of teaching in a program such as ours.


  • As the Cortona program hosts a new faculty and student body each semester, prospective faculty must submit an application for each occasion they wish to teach in Cortona.
    Exceptions: University of Georgia, LDSOA Faculty whose application materials are on file with the Cortona program, current within three years.
