Graduate Assistantships

The School of Interdisciplinary Global Studies offers Masters-level graduate assistantships each academic year. The number of assistantships vary each year.  An assistantship includes a salary (paid biweekly) based on the required hours per week.  Graduate assistants who fulfill all requirements are eligible for a tuition waiver on approved coursework as well as USF GA Health Insurance, but are responsible for student fees assessed to their account.

Graduate assistants in the School of Interdisciplinary Global Studies are assigned to assist instructors with their undergraduate courses. General duties include proctoring exams, maintaining course materials on Canvas, preparing materials for distribution to students (paper/electronic), entering exam/assignment grades in Canvas, and occasionally covering a class section when the instructor cannot be present. Please be aware that this list is not comprehensive, but provides a general sense of the common duties of a graduate assistant.

Assistantships are competitive and are only awarded to those who apply. If you are interested in an assistantship, please fill out the Graduate Assistantship Application.
