Each year the psychology department offers a limited number of graduate teaching assistantships (GTAs). Students who are awarded a GTA typically teach recitation sections of Introductory Psychology (Psy 100) or assist with an upper-division psychology course. The assistantships pay a monthly stipend and usually include a partial or full tuition waiver. Individuals interested in receiving a GTA should submit a letter of interest and qualifications along with the program's main application. During the 2005-2006 academic year, we anticipate supporting ten graduate students with GTA’s.
Depending upon the availability of grant money, faculty can provide funding for part-time graduate research assistants via graduate research assistantships (GRAs). These positions typically require previous research experience and knowledge of data collection and analysis.
