Politics Faculty


The University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota, is seeking a professor of Politics (open rank) with specialization in political philosophy and/or theory to begin service in the fall semester of 2023.


The Politics program at the University of Mary is designed to be broad, with the areas of political philosophy, theory, and science complementing each other, while engaging in interdisciplinary dialogue with areas such as history, philosophy, economics, business, and theology.
