The University of North Texas has a few spaces open for the fall of 2016, our deadline is rolling, so we’ll continue admissions and placing of TA positions throughout the summer. 

Pay and Tuition
The stipend pays $1,232 per month ($10,088/9 months) for 50% full time employment position (20 hours/week) during the first year.  2nd year TAs get a bump in pay to $1,449 per month ($13,041/9 months).   All T.A.s are eligible for in-state tuition rates which, including mandatory fees, amount to $3,591.65/semester (assuming full-time enrollment of 9 hours/semester). The UNT Communications department has a limited amount of 3-hour tuition rebates for each semester, which will bring the tuition to $2,508.05/semester (with the grad student paying for 6 hours and UNT paying for 3).

Evidence Production/Practice
Working with debate team does not require you to take on assignments or produce massive amounts of evidence.  We encourage you to do as much work as you want. You are required to maintain a minimum of 3 office hours weekly. 

Travel
You pretty much get to pick the tournaments you would like to attend.  Our first semester GA's we usually limit to 2-3 tournaments so they can adjust to graduate school.  We travel a regional and national schedule. In the 2015-2016 season UNT attended 23 tournaments in two different formats of college debate.  Travel will not interfere with your academic studies.

Teaching
As a debate GA you will have the opportunity to teach at minimum 1 class/semester.  If you would like to teach more than a single class, the opportunity will be available.  Past UNT debate graduate assistants have taught a wide range of classes including; Public Speaking, Debate & Argumentation, Argumentation & Rhetoric, Intro to Communication Studies. 

Where to Apply
All application requirements can be found on our website:  http://communication.unt.edu/graduate/admission-requirements-procedures

Please contact me or Brian Lain if you have additional questions.
