TAs must hold a B.A. degree or the equivalent.
UCSD graduate student status is also a requirement, but this requirement can be waived when no qualified graduate students are available.
Previous teaching experience is not required. Nevertheless, applicants with a history of successful teaching experience in some field may find their previous experience valuable.
All TAs must attend the annual fall workshop on language teaching given prior to the beginning of classes in September. Attendance counts as part of the total work hours for the quarter. Anyone who fails to attend the entire workshop will not be employed.
