Assistantships in Outside Departments

Teaching Assistantships (TA): These assistantships are instructional positions that include duties such as lecturing, grading papers, supervising laboratories, and leading discussion sections.

Program Assistantships (PA): These assistantships involve project-related assignments. This work varies by department and may or may not be related to a student's academic program.

Research Assistantships (RA): These assistantships provide students an opportunity to work with faculty researchers. Many times this work is structured to meet the requirements for a master's thesis or a doctoral dissertation.

TA, PA, and RA positions provide tuition, a stipend, and eligibility for health insurance. 

Contact the Graduate Program staff - Leslie Abadie and Marlina Polk McGiveron - for advice on finding these positions. In addition, you should look for opportunities on the UW Student Job Center.
