The University of Chicago calls itself the "teacher of teachers." The Department of History proudly accepts this title. After you have completed your own coursework, Chicago's intensive teaching program provides opportunties as teaching assistants, instructors, prize lecturers, BA and MA preceptors, and teaching fellows.
You will have the opportunity to teach in the College "Core" (civilization studies and general education) curriculum and in interdisciplinary centers. The academic rigor fostered by the College ensures that teaching assistants and graduate-student instructors teach and learn from undergraduates who possess immense intellectual curiosity and analytical skills. You will also learn to teach in a variety of academic settings in the department's History Pedagogy workshop and through programs offered by the Chicago Center for Teaching.
