Graduate Assistantships (GA’s) provide financial support for students; while students gain valuable supervised professional experience in the field. Graduate Assistantships typically require 20 hours/week and may include a stipend and tuition waiver (if at Buffalo State). Graduate Assistantships may also be available at surrounding institutions (i.e. Medaille College, Daemen College, Hilbert College, SUNY Fredonia). Graduate Assistantships are available on a competitive basis.
Graduate Assistantships are considered additional experience beyond the required internships. Therefore, students with a GA position are still required to conduct two internship experiences, which will enhance your candidacy and marketability in the job search process. Students should consider diversifying their experience, selecting internship experiences distinct from their GA experience.
