Teaching Assistantships (TAships)
- A limited number of teaching assistantships are available each semester. If you are a M.S. student at Fresno State, you are eligible to apply for teaching assistantships in the Biology Department. As a TA, you will assist a professor with lab instruction of a lower-division undergraduate course. This can involve teaching, grading, and other duties.
- Teaching assistantships typically cover the costs of tuition and fees along with some money to assist with housing and living expenses.
- Please contact the Biology Department Office for an application and current pay rate information. The Biology Department Office phone: 559-278-2001
- Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee financial support or teaching assistantships to all of our graduate students. Enrolled students may have a combination of scholarships, TAships, and loans to pay for their graduate education over the course of the two-year program.
