Become a Teacher

All students in the Writing Program (including Research Arts) are eligible to be a member of Columbia Artist/Teachers. Interested students should attend a brief information session, held at the beginning of the Fall semester, which addresses time commitments and stipulations particular to each teaching location, as well as application protocol.


If a student is unable to attend this information session, they should contact contact Stephanie Cuepo Wobby​​​ or a CA/T coordinator to schedule a one-on-one meeting. 


Students who are pursuing their MFA in other programs (Visual Arts, Sound Art, Theatre, Film) and are interested in teaching for the program should contact CA/T Faculty Advisors Alan Ziegler or Dorothea Lasky or Director Stephanie Cuepo Wobby
