English Language and Writing Center Instructor Job Description

Description of the Program

Designed to prepare the next generation of global leaders for the unique challenges of the 21st century, Schwarzman Scholars gives the world’s best and brightest students the opportunity to pursue a one-year Master’s Degree in Global Affairs at Tsinghua University, China’s most prestigious institution. We believe that to respond to future challenges, leaders must understand China and its role in the world. To this end, our program, taught in English, promotes engagement and cultural exchange by integrating academic coursework, language learning, guest lectures, mobile-learning Deep Dives, and Practical Training Projects (PTPs). Over the course of the year, students will be immersed in an international community of thinkers, innovators, and leaders in business, politics, and society. They will develop their leadership skills and expand their professional networks while engaging in academic discussions, exploring career opportunities, and experiencing China. We will be welcoming our fourth cohort of scholars in Fall 2019. Learn more at
