Teaching and graduate assistantships

Each year our department awards a limited number of graduate teaching and research assistantships. These assistantships often are accompanied with tuition and out-of-state fee reductions. Faculty members may also have additional funds with which they may hire research assistantships and the number of such opportunities varies each year. The primary assistantships awarded by the department each year are teaching assistantships. These assignments fall basically into three categories: 

  • Lab assignments
  • Introduction to Psychology,
  • 200-level and 300-level writing intensive courses. 

Assistantships are generally available for first and second-year graduate students. Tuition waivers are generally reserved for first-year graduate students. Find out more here.
