Teaching Assistants
Teaching assistant (TA) positions are available each academic quarter for graduate students in good academic standing to support economics curriculum. TA positions are excellent employment opportunities for graduate students interested in a teaching career and mastering the subject of the course. TA duties vary based on the needs of the course and faculty supervisor, but generally include leading sections, grading homework, quizzes and exams, holding office hours and proctoring exams.  We normally do not have additional TA positions for non-economics students. Please contact the Economics Graduate Programs Coordinator for more information.
