The GSAS Teaching Scholars Program is a professional and academic development initiative that affords advanced doctoral students in many Arts & Sciences programs the funded opportunity to design and teach an undergraduate course in their area of expertise during the academic year in preparation for the job market.
In considering whether to apply for the GSAS Teaching Scholars Program, students should consult their director of graduate studies.
“The Teaching Scholars Program has been fantastic for the doctoral students in our department, giving them a leg up on the job market and the rare chance to teach a specialized course. The undergraduate students have also greatly appreciated the lively topics and strong teaching of those selected for the program.”
—Ellie M. Hisama, Professor of Music (Music Theory and Historical Musicology)
