DOC Teaching Assistants

NOTE: If a DOC student has a schedule conflict with his/her TA’s OFFICE HOURS (see below), the student should ask the TA (either in person or via email) for an APPOINTMENT at another time.

Teaching Assistants in the Dimensions of Culture Program are graduate students working towards advanced degrees from various UCSD departments (see “Home Department” below), or they already hold these degrees.  Job applications for writing program TA positions are submitted the previous spring (TA Recruitment page). 

Please email the DOC office at docinfo@ucsd.edu if you have questions.
