M.F.A. students in the Department of Visual Arts (DOVA) are offered the opportunity to serve as teaching assistants, either in the undergraduate visual art core courses or in media courses. Teaching assistants are similar to course assistants in other departments but have more limited duties. For example, they do not assist with grading. Teaching assistants are primarily responsible for preparing class supplies including working materials and readings, setting up AV equipment, and researching exhibitions for field trips.
DOVA also awards two Post-M.F.A. Teaching Fellowships, which offer the possibility of teaching a section of the visual art core course in the year after graduation. Students may also apply to teach their own courses in the University's Graham School of General Studies during summers or after graduation. M.F.A. students should contact their department for more information.
