Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistantships are available on a competitive basis to students in the Environmental Science and Policy program. Students receiving assistantships are expected to devote approximately 20 hours per week performing assigned duties. Typical duties are serving as a classroom assistant in a laboratory or discussion section, assisting in a center or institute, or serving as a research assistant.  Student applicants will be evaluated for assistantships during the normal admission process; no additional application steps are required.

To be eligible for graduate assistantships students must:

  • be fully admitted to the M.S. degree program;
  • be enrolled for a minimum of six credits of course work each semester and no fewer than 15 credits during the entire academic year;
  • maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average for graduate courses.
