The English Department offers TESOL teaching assistantships to graduate students who teach IEP or ESL credit courses. Teaching assistants have full instructional responsibility for the courses they teach. MA candidates participate in a two-week training seminar (3 credit hours) prior to Fall term and a two-semester seminar in teaching ESL, for which they receive three total hours credit. Assistantships carry a stipend and a tuition waiver. We encourage you to apply. The GPA requirement for TAs is 2.70. For further information, contact Dr. Missy Nieveen-Phegley.
