Duties of a graduate assistant may include assisting with faculty research, classroom instruction duties as well as other academic support, and departmental operational needs. Although positions will be filled based on individual applicant’s skills, qualification, and departmental needs, applicants should convey their preferred position type to the MFA Coordinator. Qualified applicants should expect to be interviewed as part of the appointment procedure.
Applicants wishing to teach undergraduate courses will be asked to shadow a faculty member for a semester prior to teaching. Teaching GAs will be mentored by a full-time faculty member. Teaching GAs should administer student evaluations at the end of the semester as well as document student work and assignments.
The Graduate Studies Office requires semesterly evaluations of each GA by a faculty member. These reviews are accessible for review by both on and off campus persons.
Graduate Assistantships are awarded on a semester-by-semester basis. Interested students should apply through the Graduate Studies Office online application form each semester. The Graduate Studies website lists the positions available each semester. The Department of Art will send a call for applicants and note the deadlines for application each semester. See the Graduate Office’s rules and regulations on GAs.
