Graduate Teaching Assistantship

The Department of Modern Languages has graduate teaching assistantships available for graduate students in French and Spanish. You may apply to the GTA program if you are accepted unconditionally into the MODL Master’s program. Under some circumstances, a student admitted on a probationary basis may also be eligible to apply. Students accepted into the Certificate Program or admitted under a "Special" status are NOT eligible for a Graduate Teaching Assistantship.


The Department of Modern Languages provides teaching assistantships for students who have not completed 18 graduate hours. Normally, a GTA I assists in one course each semester and serves as a tutor, for a stipend. GTA I’s are eligible for in-state tuition.


Once a GTA has accrued 18 graduate hours, he/she can become a Graduate Teaching Assistant II. GTA II’s are the instructor of record for the courses they teach and receive a larger stipend. GTA II’s are also eligible for in-state tuition.
