Graduate Assistantship Opportunities

The Department offers part-time and (on rare occasions) full-time graduate assistantships. Half-time assistants do ten hours of work per week, for which they receive six hours tuition remission and a $2,500 stipend. Full-time graduate assistants, in return for twenty hours of assigned duties per week, receive full tuition remission and a stipend of $5,000 for the academic year. Graduate assistants' duties include tutoring undergraduates in general education courses and the required departmental methods courses, and can include working with professors on scholarly projects. Application for assistantships is made through the Office of Graduate Studies. To assure consideration for financial support, applications for the fall semester should be submitted by March 15. For additional information on financial aid see the Graduate Catalog.
