Applications Being Accepted for Graduate Research Assistantships

The Department of English and Philosophy’s Graduate Program is now accepting applications for its 2014-2015 research assistantships.  

Graduate Research Assistantships seek to prepare graduate students for their careers by 1) promoting faculty – student interaction; 2) exposing graduate students to areas of the profession outside of course work; (3) providing opportunities to enhance research through applied learning. Applicants are evaluated on their academic standing, statement of career goals, and experiences in lieu of the needs of the department for the academic year. Assistantships are awarded during the fall semester and may be renewable at the discretion of the Department Head. Applicants must be currently enrolled in the M.A. Program in English. These awards are equivalent to .25FTE; all awards are subject to available funding.

This year the Department of English & Philosophy is pleased to announce the availability of two graduate research assistantships: one focusing on various research responsibilities for the department, and a second to coordinate the English Lecture Series as well as the dean’s new LASS lectures series.  A description of the positions is available at
