Graduate Teaching Assistants

To be considered for a Graduate Teaching Assistant position, the candidate must be admitted unconditionally. Candidates whose native language is not English must submit an acceptable score on the Test of Spoken English (TSE-A) before arriving in the United States. GTA positions in architecture are limited and are very competitive.

The School of Architecture has a limited number of enhanced graduate teaching assistantships available for highly qualified new applicants to the Master of Architecture and Master of Landscape Architecture Programs.  These assistantships provide teaching support in areas of drawing, basic design, digital fabrication, urban development, and other areas of support for all three of the programs offered by the School including the undergraduate degree program in Interior Design.  Compensation includes full tuition (both in and out of state) and a substantial monthly stipend.  For more details contact David Jones, Associate Dean and Graduate Program Advisor, or Dr. Pat Taylor, Director of the Program in Landscape Architecture. 


To be considered for a Dean’s Fellowship the candidate must have a favorable review in most of the evaluation criteria. Candidates must be new students coming to The University of Texas at Arlington, must have a GPA of 3.0 in their last 60 undergraduate credit hours plus any graduate credit hours of 3.0, and must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 hours in both long semesters to retain their fellowships. Fellowships in Architecture are limited and very competitive.
