Student Instructorships

SLaT students are often hired as graduate student instructors within the departments of their language of specialization. Graduate instructors are solely responsible for class instruction, assigning and correcting assignments, giving quizzes and exams, and awarding grades at the end of the semester. Students applying for instructorship positions must be accepted into the SLaT program and have demonstrated prior teaching experience. Hiring takes place a few months before each semester. Each student will be required to apply through their respective language department. Often, departments require instructors to attend orientation and in-service meetings prior to the start of the semester.

Graduate students are normally hired for 10 hours/week per course, and paid on average between $12-$18/ hour, depending on experience.

Students who are interested in acquiring an instructorship should email the Assistant Director at
