Summer 2012

 Graduate Teaching Assistant Positions (GTA)

Available for Qualifying MID/MAID Students 


The primary responsibilities of the TA are related to specific undergraduate course content, and will be determined by the Faculty member teaching the course. Generally the TA will assist in the classroom, participate in group and individual critiques, and provide assistance to students outside of class.
