Graduate Assistantships

The Master of Public Health Program awards two graduate assistantships each year for students to participate in research by assisting MPH faculty. The students will be placed with MPH faculty based on the kinds of research skills they would like to develop. A GA could work with more than one faculty member over the course of the year on a range of projects in both qualitative and quantitative research. The expectation is that the selected students will gain valuable knowledge, experience, and skills for building a career in public health research and faculty will benefit from their support. The selected students are also expected to share the results of the research at the annual Health Disparities and Social Justice Conference.

The GA position comes with 16 credit hours (4 courses) of tuition support and a stipend.

  • Full time MPH student for the 2016-17 academic year enrolled in at least 16 credit hours (4 courses)
