Graduate Assistantships

A limited number of graduate assistantships are available in the Applied Communication program. Although our MA program is fully online, these assistantships require in person work on the UA Little Rock campus, located in Little Rock, AR. The position may involve full time (20 hours a week) or part time (10 hours a week) work and our GA roles require a two year commitment. Our assistantships cover tuition for 9 hours of course work each Fall and Spring (not including fees and books) plus a stipend. Conditionally admitted students do not qualify for our assistantships.

We encourage students to submit their graduate assistantship application by March 15, but applications will be accepted until qualified students are found and all GA spots are filled.
