UMUC offers opportunities to teach upper-level courses that are normally not available to adjuncts

Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee)
Largo, MD

I worked at UMUC part-time for more than 3 years

ProsIn the upper-level classes, the students are competent and motivated
Supportive administration
Flexible scheduling, since most classes are online
Pays a bit more than other local colleges

ConsUMUC is pretty prescriptive in its online platform and in course content
The eight-week semesters reduce the quality of instruction/learning and make it difficult to keep up with the workload.

Advice to Senior ManagementRethink the commitment to the eight-week format.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
