Becoming a Teaching Assistant (TA) or Research Assistant (RA) is a great way to earn upper-division credit, build your resume, gain professional experience, and work closely with a faculty member (which could lead to a letter of recommendation).
TA duties may include, but are not limited to:
- Attending class meetings
- Holding office hours
- Answering student questions
RA duties may include, but are not limited to:
- Reading articles and writing literature reviews
- Inputting and coding data
- Conducting research

To apply for a TA or RA position, you must contact the instructor offering the position directly. Each instructor’s requirements, expectations, and application process will differ. The application requirements for available TA and RA positions are listed on the spreadsheet linked at the bottom of this page.
Students earn upper-division credit for serving as a TA or RA. If an instructor is interested in having you as a TA or RA, they will provide you with a permission number to enroll in TA or RA credits for the Spring semester. You can only serve as a TA a maximum of three times — once for PSYC 101, and two times for all other PSYC courses. Additionally, you are limited to taking total 9 credits of PSYC 488, the course you would enroll in as a RA.
