The graduate students in our department are teacher-scholars who are given ample opportunities
during their time at USF to grow into excellent and experienced instructors. We offer
numerous opportunities for students to learn the art of teaching from both a theoretical
and practical perspective. Through a combination of offering numerous courses on pedagogy,
mentorships, and teaching, the USF English department creates a general ethos of caring
about teaching. Our graduate students embrace their important roles as teachers.
