Teaching Assistantships are available for qualified applicants. TAs in the English Department may be assigned a range of duties, including tutoring in the University Writing Center, assisting faculty members in courses, and teaching sections of Composition I and Composition II. TAs will receive a partial tuition waiver (70%) as well as a small stipend for living expenses. All applications for our MA program will automatically also be considered for a TA position—there is no separate application.  For any questions about TAships, please contact the Graduate Coordinator, Dr. Shalyn Claggett.

In addition to Graduate Teaching Assistantships, the department offers several scholarships, including the Dr. Richard Patteson Endowed Scholarship, The William H. Magruder Memorial Scholarship, Howell H. Gwin Scholarship, and the Eugene Butler Scholarship in Creative Writing. For more information on these and other scholarships, please visit our scholarship page. All required material for scholarship applications is due by March 15.
