  • 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 2023–2024 academic year will open Monday, November 7, with a deadline of Wednesday, November 30. Selected TF applicants will begin to receive tentative offer letters from late March to early April 2023 on a rolling basis through the summer. 

    The application for Teaching Assistantships for the 2023–2024 academic year will open in late February 2023, with a late March deadline. Selected TA applicants will begin to receive tentative offer letters from mid-May on a rolling basis through the summer.
