As a graduate student, graduate assistantships offer valuable experience and financial support. Graduate assistants in the Department of Communication are hired on a yearly or semester-by-semester basis, depending on your qualifications and departmental need. As a graduate assistant, you are primarily responsible for teaching lower-division undergraduate communication courses; in some cases you may also work with faculty as a research assistant or assisting in other department-related duties as needed. The University waives out-of-state tuition, allowing graduate students to pay tuition and fees at the low in-state rate. If you are interested in applying for a graduate assistantship, submit the Application for Graduate Assistantship form to the Graduate School.
Studio C Presents is an opportunity for broadcast students to practice their craft. Experienced students will have the opportunity to create an information or talk show from start to finish. Students can create a studio production, a field production or an audio podcast that they have creative control over. These projects will be posted on YouTube, linked to the appropriate department pages and in some cases air live over the houndwaves internet radio stream.
