Graduate Teaching Assistantship

UW-Green Bay offers a teaching assistantship (TA) for students pursuing the Master of Social Work degree (MSW). The purpose of graduate teaching assistantships is to provide instructional capacity for the University, and to further develop public speaking, instructional, and scholarship capabilities of talented graduate students in the field of social work. Students receiving assistantships are expected to teach and/or assist with instruction for the equivalent of twelve credits (approximately 20 hours) during the academic year.

To qualify for the Social Work graduate TA, the applicant must:

  • Be fully admitted to the MSW Program
  • Be enrolled for a minimum of six credits of course work each semester and no fewer than 15 credits during the entire academic year (part-time students are eligible to apply)
  • Maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average for graduate courses
  • Have outstanding potential for teaching

Graduate Social Work assistants are selected through an interview process conducted by a committee of Social Work faculty. For an outline of responsibilities and required qualifications, see the Social Work Graduate Teaching Assistant (TA) Position Description.

To apply for the Social Work Graduate TA, submit a cover letter, current resume, and contact information for two professional references to socialwork@uwgb.edu. Applications for the upcoming academic year are due the second Friday in April.
