Ph.D. students usually work as Writing Center Consultants their first year in the program. In each semester thereafter, students can teach one section of either First-Year Writing or Advanced Writing in the Disciplines, both required undergraduate courses that fulfill Northeastern’s Writing Requirement. The Writing Program supports Ph.D. student instructors with mentoring pairs, three annual workshops, teaching networks, and informal inquiry groups.
Ph.D. students also have the opportunity to apply for a Teaching Practicum under the supervision of a graduate faculty member. Please visit the “Graduate Teaching Practicum” webpage for more information.
