Career & Professional Development


Most positions in academia, from tenure-track professors to adjunct lecturers, require a teaching component. Regular classroom teaching is not as common in other professions, save for K-12 education, but you may find yourself teaching a workshop session on your area of expertise to your colleagues or performing outreach activities to a public audience. Take advantage of the teaching opportunities available to you as a graduate student, whether it’s a TA appointment, a volunteer outreach opportunity, or a one-time workshop on a topic of your choice.
