Assistantships

Teaching and research assistantship positions are available to graduate students in the Department of Philosophy.

Teaching Assistantships

Teaching assistantships are available to all philosophy graduate students. The stipend for a full-time appointment (average of 12 hours/week for 8 months) is approximately $12,000 per year. Students admitted to the program are contacted in late spring concerning these positions.

Research Assistantships

Many faculty members in the department have grant funding, which provides opportunities for graduate research assistantships related to the grant project. Research assistants are arranged directly with the faculty member concerned, who is usually, but not always, the student’s supervisor.
