Teaching Requirement

The University requires all Ph.D. students to complete a teaching requirement. In the Department of Political Science, this means two years of serving as a teaching assistant for a lecture course in Political Science.  First-time Teaching Fellows are also required to participate in the teaching workshop offered by the School of Arts and Sciences in late summer.  They are also expected to participate in a year-long semi-monthly workshop run by the department on issues of teaching and research.
