Teacher Intern Program (TIPs)

Teacher Intern Program (TIP) offers Graduate Student Teaching Opportunity in the Department of Psychology. The program is committed to mentoring and training psychology graduate students as college instructors. For over 40 years, the Department of Psychology has offered graduate students an opportunity to gain experience teaching over one academic school year through the Teacher Intern Program. Second year and Continuing Second year graduate students have the rare opportunity to teach Psychology 150: Introduction to Psychology and/or Psychology 321Lab: Research Methods (as the Instructor of Record, not as a Teaching Assistant).  Teacher interns are closely supervised and monitored by the program faculty coordinator. During the first semester of teaching, Teacher Interns will be assigned one course. Appointments of two sections are occasionally offered, based on enrollment needs, graduate work status, and experience. Interns may teach no more than two sections per semester. To be considered into the program, applicants must be current graduate students in good standing in the Psychology Department Master's program. Returning Teacher Interns must be graduate students in good standing who have satisfactorily fulfilled the responsibilities of their teaching appointments.
