Graduate Teaching & Research Assistantships

The Department of Health and Human Performance annually awards competitive graduate assistantships to highly qualified individuals interested in serving as teaching assistants. The majority of Graduate Teaching Assistants instruct classes in our Personal Fitness and Wellness Program (i.e., individual and team sports, weight training, yoga etc.), or our Exercise and Sport Science laboratory classes (i.e., Exercise Physiology). There are also, at times, opportunities for graduate students to serve as research assistants. Selection is based on the students’ academic background and professional experience. Applications can be accessed via the following link Graduate Assistantship. "Applications will be accepted throughout the academic year.  Priority deadlines are March 1st for the Spring semester, and November 1st for the Fall semester."
