Each year the School of Writing, Literature, and Film offers a GTA (graduate teaching assistantship) to accepted MFA students. If you are interested in applying for an assistantship, just check the box on your graduate application under Additional Graudate Questions and discuss your teaching aims in your letter or statement of objectives. Also, ask those who are writing recommendations for you to speak particularly about your aptitude for and experience with teaching.

In addition to GTA positions in the School of Writing, Literature, and Film, other opportunities for support and for relevant disciplinary experience are available.
