Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A graduate assistant (GA) is a position who serves in a support role (assistantship) at a university, usually while completing post-graduate education[1]. The individual typically assists professors or with instructional responsibilities as teaching assistants, coaches with an athletic team, or university department such as housing, academic advising or works in another entry-level capacity. Rather than receive hourly wages, GAs are typically remunerated in the form of a stipend that offsets some or all of their tuition[2]. Assistantships provide much needed experience and a specific area of competency, aiding the graduate in his or her search for a career in the future. Graduate assistants are sometimes called Graduate teaching assistants or TA's. Not all Graduate assistants teach or assist in research.
