Professor of Themed Entertainment Design

SCAD Savannah seeks a nationally recognized themed entertainment designer to join its faculty as a full-time professor.

Themed entertainment designers bring the stories and experiences of our world to life. They weave fictional and non-fictional narratives into compelling environments - places that elicit wonder and joy, communicate complex ideas, and translate emotional values into tangible experiences. The SCAD themed entertainment design program blends studios in design and planning with skill-based drawing and technical courses and classes in storytelling and experience design. Using your design expertise and proven technical skills, you will teach a vibrant curriculum in a graduate program which is the first of its kind in the world.

Successful candidates are accomplished professionals with experience across a broad range of entertainment venues, including attractions, museums, brand environments, retail, theme parks, and leisure destinations. Three or more years of experience in higher education is preferred, and proven technical skills are a must.

SCAD Savannah is woven throughout the historic district of one of TIME magazine’s “World's Greatest Places 2021.” Savannah's charming landscapes, vibrant festivals, and celebrated events provide a living laboratory for the study of art and design, as well as an energetic environment in which students, faculty, and staff flourish. This is your chance to work with students in a vibrant and entrepreneurial workplace that embraces innovation, creativity, and collaboration.
