Known as the University for Creative Careers, SCAD has cultivated an energetic, collaborative environment where diverse and experienced faculty and staff dedicate themselves to the development of the next generation of leaders in art and design.

The undergraduate experience at SCAD is anchored in foundation studies — a thoughtfully curated series of courses that build the visual, conceptual, and creative abilities essential to students’ development as professionals.

The successful candidate has a strong portfolio of professional work, as well as the ability to teach drawing and design classes in an active and engaging learning environment.

Located in the heart of midtown, SCAD Atlanta is nestled within a cultural landscape that includes theaters, museums, fine art galleries, bustling shops, and countless green spaces, including Piedmont Park and Atlanta’s famed BeltLine. Through rotating exhibitions at SCAD museums and galleries and the university’s extensive permanent collection, you and your students have exclusive access to objects of study at the SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah, SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta, and the university’s numerous galleries. Enriching signature events invite visiting artists from across the globe to engage in creative discourse. Recent guest artists have included Carlos Cruz-Diez, Alfredo Jaar, Carrie Mae Weems, Hank Willis Thomas, Dustin Yellin, and Omar Victor Diop to name a few.
