Graduate Assistant Opportunities
Assistantships and scholarships are available through the School of Education. There are two types of assistantships—research and teaching. To be considered for a teaching assistantship (teaching a non-remedial course for three or more hours of credit), the graduate student must have earned at least eighteen graduate semester hours in their teaching discipline. Research Assistantships primarily involve graduate students paired in research with a graduate faculty member or in independent research under the supervision of a graduate faculty member.
Although the specific responsibilities will vary by department and assistantship, the number of hours required by the department in return for this assistance will typically not exceed twenty hours per week in order to protect graduate students from excessive commitments away from research and study.
