Graduate Assistants provide crucial professional services in the Department of English, and their position carries a high level of responsibility and independence. Graduate Assistants are full-time students, but their workload typically includes assisting a faculty member in a compostion course during the first semester of study and then teaching one composition course during the second semester of the first year.
Second year GAs typically teach one or two composition courses during the fall term, and one course during the final, or spring, term. GAs also tutor in our writing center.
