Yale Summer Session
Yale Summer Session provides a potential opportunity for advanced doctoral students and recent PhDs to teach their own course at Yale. A small number of proposed courses may be accepted. Advanced doctoral students and recent PhDs are eligible to apply to teach a single course during the summer in one of the two summer sessions.
Session A runs approximately from late May to late June. Session B runs from the start of July to the beginning of August (check the Yale Summer Session for exact dates).
Yale Summer Session accepts applications for summer teaching during the month of September, with a typical October 1 deadline. The program makes final decisions on which courses will be taught for Summer Session 2020 by December 1st. Anyone who is thinking about teaching this summer should fill out the form by October 1st to receive full consideration. Potential instructors may wish to reach out to Michael S. Fitzpatrick, Associate Director of Academic Affairs for Yale Summer Session, at email@example.com
Further information is available on the Yale Summer Session website, particularly this overview. History graduate students should fill out the application online and let the History DUS know of their interest in teaching. If their course is selected by Yale Summer Session, students will need to get approval from both their advisor and the DGS later in the spring (which constitutes “faculty sponsorship”). All graduate students should double-check their funding situation, as there are some cases where graduate students may not earn summer compensation.
