Assistantship General Information
TA's, or Teaching Assistants, are outstanding students who are paid to assist professors in the classroom. Typically a teaching assistant is assigned to a specific professor each quarter. Occasionally, in lieu of teaching, a TA will be assigned to help a professor with his/her research.
The Department's Graduate Committee meets once a year in late winter or early spring to choose TA’s. Applicants are expected to have submitted the proper forms (available from Graduate Studies) by February 15. The committee looks for students who are mature, reliable, and demonstrates excellent GPA and GRE scores.
