Graduate Assistantships

The MFA Communication Design program offers a limited number of Graduate Assistant positions to qualified students. Graduate Assistants are paid a stipend and provided office space with the latest technology. In addition, students who would normally be charged out-of-state tuition rates are eligible for in-state rates.

Most of the MFA Graduate Assistants assist the School of Art and Design’s Undergraduate Communication Design Program by becoming “teacher of record” for two classes in the fall and spring semesters. This experience is invaluable for graduate students who wish to consider a career in academia.

Criteria for Graduate Assistant include:

  • Unconditional acceptance to the MFA Communication Design program

  • Full time enrollment (9 credit hours=3 courses) during the fall and spring semesters

  • Academic good standing in MFA program

  • Commitment to employment as a Graduate Assistant until completion of MFA
