If accepted, the Graduate Assistant works 15 hours per week during the regular semester. In return, the College forgives all tuition for coursework completed in connection with M.A. in Humanities Program over the course of the academic Fall and Spring semester (Note: Tuition benefits received are taxable income.)
The positions run for one year, and are renewable for a second (but may not be renewed after two years). During the assistantship, the student must complete a minimum of two but no more than three courses in a given semester. If the student elects to take summer course offerings, the tuition costs for those classes would not be forgiven through the Graduate Assistantship.
Currently, the program offers the following Graduate Assistantships:
There are also campus-wise assistantships available. If you have any questions about the duties and responsibilities of any assistantship, or to learn about other opportunities, please contact the Graduate Program Director.
