The School of Art maintains approximately 60 graduate and teaching assistantships. Each year assistantships are used to recruit the best students across the nation and internationally. Incoming Master's level students receiving assistantships in their first year normally work as either studio or grading assistants while Ph.D. candidates may teach 2 courses per year. Second and third year M.F.A. students holding assistantships normally are expected to teach either in the studio foundation area or in the area of their specialization.
Also, there are several Graduate School assistantships that are competitive and awarded across the campus. Graduate School assignments usually involve a grading or studio assistance as well as research or creative activity related to the mission of the school.
