Graduate Assistantship Policy
Graduate students who are enrolled full time in the French or Spanish MA and receive assistantships will receive 2 years of support, pending budgetary constraints and provided students are in good academic standing and have received satisfactory performance evaluations. Every funding package includes subsidized health insurance and a full waiver of tuition (which in 2010-11 was $3,600/semester for Georgia residents and $14,400/semester for out-of-state residents). Students must still pay fees, about $1,000/semester. We believe that offering funding to graduate students greatly improves the average academic ability of our graduate students and the social life of the Department. After 2 years, graduate students are not guaranteed support, but may receive an assistantship if one is available and if the budget allows. Priority for assistantships will be given to students entering the MA program.
Students will need to complete the online form for the Graduate Assistantship. The form can be found on the MCL website here: Application for Graduate Assistantships: Lab, Research, or Teaching. If applying for a teaching position please send Melissa Skye email@example.com your CV.
Students who currently have an assistantship are required to apply for renewal each semester.
*ALL new GTAs for our department are required to take the FORL 6128 Teaching Foreign Languages at the College Level. It is only offered during the fall semester and can be taken while you are teaching.
