  • Student Teaching Program

  • The New School provides graduate students with employment opportunities as Teaching Fellows (TFs) and Teaching Assistants (TAs).

    Teaching Fellows are the instructors of record for their courses and bear full responsibility for the classes they teach. Teaching Assistants work under the direction of a course instructor to help with a range of instructional responsibilities, which may include leading a discussion section. Please consult this document for an overview of the differences in responsibilities between these two positions.

    Serving as a Teaching Assistant is an important first step in the process of becoming a course instructor. Students who do not have experience as TAs or instructors in a college or university setting will ideally, therefore, apply first to be Teaching Assistants rather than Teaching Fellows.

    The application for Teaching Fellowships for the 2022-2023 academic year will be online soon. Students will be notified by email announcement when the application is open for submission on careers.newschool.edu. Information Sessions will be held on Zoom. Click this link for details. Selected TF applicants will begin to receive tentative offer letters from late March to early April 2022 and on a rolling basis through the summer. Additional questions should be sent to gradstudentteaching@newschool.edu. For answers to the most commonly asked questions, please consult our FAQ.

    The application for Teaching Assistantships for the 2022-2023 academic year will be made available on careers.newschool.edu in early March 2022. Prospective applicants can review the list of 2021-2022 TA Opportunities to get a sense of possible opportunities for the purposes of preparing their application materials. Information sessions will be held in early to mid-March, and applications are due in late March. Students who have never applied for a TA opportunity are strongly encouraged to attend an information session.
