Students who wish
to teach while they are enrolled in the MFA program, but who don't have prior
composition teaching experience at the college level, are required to take English 7506,
Practicum in Teaching College-Level Composition. The course includes a tutor-internship
in an instructor's classroom. After completing English 7506, students may be assigned to teach their
own section of composition, English 1010 or 1012. Students with relevant teaching experience are
not required to take English 7506 but must wait until they have been accepted into the program before
applying for these positions.
