Graduate Assistant Job Description

A graduate assistant (GA) is a graduate student who serves in an administrative or teaching-like role at a school or college, often in a graduate department.

The term is also used to refer to graduate students who serve as teaching assistants (TAs) for undergraduate courses.

GAs can also be teaching assistants in graduate programs and community college lecturers.

GAs generally work part-time in an academic setting, and thus are distinguished from teaching assistants (TAs) who work full time in an academic setting.
