Incoming Students

Supervised Teaching

All graduate students matriculated for the PhD degree are required to perform a certain amount of teaching assistance as part of their education. Teaching experience deepens and enriches a student’s understanding of the discipline and provides invaluable professional training and is, therefore, considered to be a vital component of any PhD program. The amount and nature of the teaching varies according to departments and programs. This requirement is independent of whether the student is receiving a fellowship, scholarship, or assistantship, although teaching assistants will, by virtue of their assignments, automatically fulfill this requirement.
