The Committee on Social Thought requires a minimum of three Mentored Teaching Experiences
(MTEs) as part of the degree requirements, but allows for more provided they are planned in
advance and pedagogically justified. The number as well as the type of MTEs students complete
should be determined in close consultation with their advisor. MTE plans must be submitted by
the end of the spring quarter of the second year and may be completed at any time during a
student’s tenure in the program.
