Proposing an Education Studies course

The Education Studies program includes courses taught by distinguished practitioners in the education field who share their clinical expertise with students. These courses, taught on a one time basis, have included courses in education law, journalism, leadership.

Lecturers generally hold a terminal post-baccalaureate degree (PhD, JD, MFA, MD, or the equivalent), and generally have experience teaching at the college or university level. Exceptions are sometimes made in the case of professionals who have distinguished themselves in their chosen fields and who have five or more years of professional experience. Exceptions are also sometimes made in the case of advanced graduate students at Yale, who are actively pursuing a terminal degree and are in the final year of their graduate career.

Interested applicants should apply to teach in the Yale College Seminar Program and email with a CV/resume and a cover letter. Please include in the proposal how the course would complement and build off existing Education Studies courses, and how it would fit into the program’s focus on research, policy and practice. Course development grants are available. 

Applicants of color, LGBTQ+ applicants, or those from other underrepresented backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply. Yale does not discriminate against any individual on account of that individual’s sex, race, color, religion, age, disability, status as a special disabled veteran, veteran of the Vietnam era or other covered veteran, or national or ethnic origin; nor does Yale discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.
