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.
