Graduate Assistantships

The department has a limited number of graduate assistantship positions available. These assistantships provide for a monthly stipend for eight months and a full tuition waiver, typically for fall, spring, and summer semesters. They further provide professional experience as well as additional contact between students and faculty. The positions are awarded on a competitive basis to new students. Types of positions include assistantships for research and teaching with faculty members, for laboratory and other courses, and some administrative offices within the department. Assignments are 10 to 15 hours per week. Alternatively, assistantships may be available through grants and contracts to individual faculty members and through other university department
