All college faculty also teach in the high school program; successful applicants must be interested and able to teach either Literature of the Americas or World Literature in the high school program.

These skills are further developed in the college program, where students take a core seminar each semester, as well as a range of electives.
Ph.D. and college teaching experience, as well as experience working with or interest in younger students, are desirable. Scholars in a broad range of literary fields are encouraged to apply.
