Debate Graduate Assistantship at the University of Florida
Coach Debate and Study in Any Academic Department

****Apply soon---Graduate Admission Deadlines Approaching!!!!!****

The University of Florida Speech and Debate Team would like to invite candidates to apply for a graduate coaching assistantship to work with our policy debate program beginning Fall 2015. Because there is no graduate program in Communication Studies at UF, assistantships can be awarded to either MA or PhD students studying in any academic department! The assistantship includes a full-time (9 credit hours per semester) tuition waiver, a salary stipend, graduate student health insurance, and a tournament travel stipend. Though the assistantship does not require any teaching, teaching opportunities with the Public Speaking Program may be available for additional funding.  

The University of Florida has a rich tradition and history of support for intercollegiate debate and forensics. The Graduate Assistant coach is expected to supervise and provide models for research and argument writing, oversee practice debates and speaking drills, manage research assignments, judge at and travel to at least three tournaments per semester. As the debate graduate assistant you will work in a partnership with the Director of Debate to serve students at all levels of experience. We will work with graduate students in harmonizing their coaching duties and coursework. The Director of Forensics, takes care of most of the administrative responsibilities such as travel arrangements and paperwork, so your responsibilities are much more focused on coaching the debaters.

Candidates are required to complete the admission application for the department they are interested in studying in by the departmentís deadline (go to UFís  graduate page at http://www.admissions.ufl.edu/prospectivegraduate.html to link to academic departments and the graduate school). In order to apply for the assistantship, please supply Sean Ridley with the following information no later than January 1, 2015. Please email Sean (sridley@ufl.edu) : your name, address, email, phone number, name of school you completed your Bachelorís Degree (and Masters if completed) and Major. Please also include contact information for three references as well as a one page coaching philosophy statement. This statement should include information about your coaching style and goals for a competitive program that is tailored to all levels of policy debate.

If you are interested in more information about graduate assistantships with the University of Florida Debate Team, feel free to contact us.
