Student Assistantships and Tutorships
On a fairly regular basis, a small number of BA and MA students are offered part-time appointments in the department working as student assistants (for a professor) or tutors (for an instructor). These positions are usually filled by people who’ve made a positive impression through their exceptional participation in class or through a professional work ethic in their thesis projects. The positions are seldom advertised formally and hiring is done at the discretion of the individual professor or instructor.
If you think you might be interested in becoming a student assistant or a tutor, we recommend that you at least let your professors or instructors know.
