Each year the Department of Sport and Physical Education offers a select number of graduate assistantship positions to individuals pursuing a degree in Sport & Athletic Administration. Currently, assistantships are awarded to individuals to teach undergraduate classes in Gonzaga University’s extensive activities program. Assistants are awarded two to five credits a semester.
The number of assistantships offered each year is based upon the needs of the department and student enrollment. Selection criteria include academic record, recommendations, experience, and departmental needs. While each applicant is asked for a preference of courses in which he/she feels competent to teach, the department cannot guarantee the desired courses will be given.
Once all the teaching assistantships have been conferred, if all allotted assistantship credits have not been awarded, the remaining credits may be granted to individuals interested in pursuing research assistantships. In this case, the student will be assigned a faculty member to work with on current research projects.
Preference will be given to applicants who have experience in the types of duties required for the position in which he/she applies.
