Graduate Assistantships.

The Psychology Department has a limited number of graduate assistantship positions available. Most assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis to incoming first year graduate students. These provide a monthly stipend for eight months and a tuition waiver for fall, spring, and summer semesters. They further provide professional experience as well as additional contact between students and faculty. Types of positions include assistantships for research and teaching with faculty members, for laboratory and other courses, and in administrative offices within the department. Assignments are 13 hours per week. Alternatively, assistantships may be available through grants and contracts to individual faculty members and through other university departments and offices. Typically, graduate students who desire an assistantship are able to find one, either in the department or elsewhere on campus.
