Graduate Assistantship Opportunities
ABOUT THE ASSISTANTSHIP
The office of University Counseling Services is typically approved for one or two graduate assistants each academic year. The graduate assistantship provides an excellent opportunity for a graduate student to gain hands-on experience in the major. The assistantship is essentially a supervised clinical position in which the student is afforded experience working with undergraduate student-clients presenting an array of concerns similar to those the student will encounter in the field of counseling after graduation. As such, the student will gain invaluable relevant experiences that will considerably augment his/her coursework. The Graduate Assistant will be assigned to a faculty psychologist who will meet with the student on a weekly basis to monitor clinical cases, and who will work closely with the student in the development of sound counseling skills that will be needed for later employment in the field. In addition, the student will participate in weekly training sessions designed to foster professional growth in the field, with topics that include clinical issues, ethics and laws governing the profession, and resumé/employment preparation. Faculty supervisors from the department work directly with faculty in the department of Counseling and Human Services to assess and foster the graduate assistant’s professional growth.
