Adjunct Information
(For MFA and MA English students only)

A very limited number of one-course adjunct and graduate assistant teaching positions, primarily in freshman composition (English 1010 and English 1012), may be available for applicants who have classroom teaching qualifications. If you wish to be considered, write directly to the department chairperson, Professor Ellen Tremper; include an up-to-date curriculum vitae and a one-page description of the way you would approach teaching such a course. Applicants without prior college teaching experience are encouraged to accept special department tutorial assignments, which may lead to actual teaching in subsequent semesters. Those teaching for us for the first time are generally required to enroll in English 7506, Practicum in Teaching College-Level Composition, which is offered in both the fall and spring semester. This course is a practicum in the teaching of writing that is recommended for tutors as well.

MFA/MA applicants must wait until they have been accepted before applying for these positions.
