Graduate Assistantships



What is a Graduate Assistantship?

Majority of our students pursuing the full-time program option, take advantage of our graduate assistantships.  These positions provide students the opportunity to take the knowledge they gain through the program and directly utilize it in a professional environment.  Assistantships (typically 20 hours per week) offer students the chance to put theory into practice as well as help support themselves financially.  

Interview Day

Every March we invite all newly admitted students to SMU for the chance learn more about our incredible campus and attend Preview Day. This is a great opportunity to mingle with other admitted students, as well as interact with the program’s current students and faculty members. This experience allows interested students the time to interview for highly coveted graduate assistantship positions.
