Teaching Opportunities

During the semesters when they are not on fellowship, JPEE students teach one course per semester, and they have opportunities to serve as instructors of record in a variety of courses in both the Department of English and the School of Education.   Most begin by teaching first-year composition, and from there they move on to professional writing, creative writing, advanced composition, methods of teaching English, or courses in related fields.  One of the goals of the Program is to ensure that students have an opportunity to teach many different courses while they are in graduate school.
