Teaching opportunities

The MFA Teaching Fellowship is a two-year appointment that provides students with experience in teaching college writing. Teaching fellows spend their first year as interns, assisting an experienced professor with an undergraduate composition course during the fall semester. In the spring semester, all interns and teaching fellows attend a one-day mini-conference on syllabus preparation, grade norming, classroom practices, readings in pedagogy, and classroom experiences. Fellows teach a composition course in their second year.
