Graduate Teaching Assistantships

The Department of Communication and Media offers financial support to graduate students majoring in communication through Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs). A GTA position will give students an opportunity to gain valuable experience working within the department while reducing the financial strain of graduate education. GTAs receive financial support through tuition waivers and stipends. GTAs are responsible for delivering 20 hours of service per week in the department through the administration of online courses, on-campus courses, or research assistance. In any given year, the number of available positions will vary.
GTA positions are competitively awarded. Preference is given to applicants with a strong academic record, relevant experience, and letters of recommendations and/or support from active and/or established scholars in the field. For more information, see the GTA Position Announcement. Applications for the academic year (August through May) are due the preceding June.
