Research and Work Study Opportunities in History


History Work-Study Program: Be a History Teaching Assistant!

“The TAs” are the heart of the history department, forming a fun and friendly community of students. Any student with work-study dollars is eligible, but we especially encourage History majors and minors to apply. Teaching Assistants work on a variety of different tasks for faculty, including photocopying, scanning articles, returning books or audio-visual materials to the library, and running errands. Based on a rotation schedule, students are typically on duty for six to eight hours a week in the faculty student assistant office. To apply for a work study job with the History department, please contact the Senior Administrative Coordinator Kayla Begg.

Rains Research Assistants

Students interested in helping faculty members with their research are encouraged to contact a full-time faculty member in spring semester (for the following summer and/or academic year) to serve as their Rains research assistant. Each Rains research assistant may work for a maximum of 120 hours per year, an award of up to $1200. More information here.
