The Department of Health, Human Performance and Recreation at Baylor University annually awards competitive graduate assistantships to highly qualified individuals interested in becoming a contributing part of our unique graduate program. We offer teaching assistantships to both sport pedagogy and exercise physiology applicants, and we also offer graduate assistantships to exercise physiology applicants to work as fitness advisors at the Family Health Center off campus. Graduate Teaching Assistants usually teach four lifetime fitness classes per semester to undergraduate students. The application is done by filling out the form below. A major job responsibility of fitness advisors at the Family Health Center is to design, implement, and monitor individualized exercise prescriptions for the agency patients for a minimum of 20 hours per week. This assistantship is for 12 months that can be renewed for additional 6 or 12 months. It includes a full tuition remission and a stipend of $825/month. Exercise Physiology applicants may apply for both assistantships and should indicate the preference and qualifications in the letter of intent.
