Teaching Associate Opportunities

Graduates of Pacific’s MFA in Writing program are encouraged to apply to teach undergraduates on Pacific University’s campus in Forest Grove, Oregon. Teaching associates receive a financial award of approximately $5000 to instruct a semester-long college composition or introductory creative writing course.

Alumni and students who are close to graduation are invited to apply for these positions. Selections are made based upon the quality of the application and the writing and teaching background of the applicant.

These positions promote expertise in the teaching of college-level writing and give our graduate students the opportunity to hone their instructional skills. Pacific’s small, welcoming campus with its intense focus on liberal arts is an ideal location for graduates to share their knowledge and devotion to the craft of writing.
