• 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 therefore ideally apply first to be Teaching Assistants rather than Teaching Fellows.

    The application for Teaching Fellowships for the 2024–2025 will open on November 6. An email announcement will be sent to students with further details in mid-fall 2023.

    The application for Teaching Assistantships for the 2023–2024 academic year has now closed. Selected TA applicants will begin to receive tentative offer letters for fall 2023 positions as early as late April and on a rolling basis through the summer. Any questions about spring 2024 openings for academically eligible students should be directed to gradstudentteaching@newschool.edu

    Additional questions should be sent to gradstudentteaching@newschool.edu. For answers to the most commonly asked questions, please consult our FAQ.
