Graduate Teaching

The ability to communicate your knowledge to others is an important part of a graduate education, whether or not you plan to pursue a career in teaching. The department requires that all graduate students have some teaching experience as part of their advanced degree requirements.

To aid in the development of teaching and communication skills, beginning teaching assistants participate in the Graduate School Instructional Development orientation program just prior to their first fall semester, and take CHEM 700, Supervised Teaching in College Chemistry, during the first fall semester.
