Graduate Assistantships and Tutoring Assistantships

​​​​​​​The department offers Graduate Assistantships to graduate students, which provide tuition waivers and a stipend. Graduate Assistants perform a variety of duties including tutoring statistics and research methods; teaching assistance for statistics courses; supporting undergraduate and graduate program events and activities; and providing research assistance. Graduate Assistants work 10 hours per week during normal business hours at the DePaul University Lincoln Park campus. The Graduate Assistant work calendar follows the academic year calendar - autumn, winter and spring quarters - from early September until Thanksgiving and from early January until early June, with a one-week spring break in late March.

For additional information, please contact the Director of Sociology Graduate Studies.
