This section provides information about teaching responsibilities and opportunities for graduate students in the Humanities Division.
Most first-year Humanities graduate students are not allowed to teach; rather, they are expected to focus on their coursework. This is especially true of students in our intensive one-year master's programs.
Pedagogical training is a required component of doctoral education, and University resources can help you acquire the skills and experiences you need to feel at ease in the classroom, whether you are leading a discussion section, lecturing in the Humanities Common Core, or teaching a course of your own design.
All students who are interested in pursuing teaching opportunities after completing their degrees should see our Professional Development pages for information about University resources they may find helpful.
Divisional policies regarding student employment, as well as hours associated with each type of teaching appointment, can be found here.
