Master of Science in Economics (MS) Degree

Teaching Assistantships

The School of Economics provides funding support to MS Economics students by awarding Teaching Assistantships (TA) to highly qualified applicants.

The TA position requires 20 hours of work per week. In this position, students work closely with one or two professors or instructors, preparing course materials, running tutoring sessions and at times helping to proctor exams. TAs also maintain the instructor’s grades and can be expected to grade students’ homework assignments and exams.

This assistantship will include a stipend each month for nine months, beginning the fall quarter and continue through until the end of spring quarter.

MS Economics applicants will be automatically considered for a TA position at the time of their application.

Preference will be given to applicants with an undergraduate degree in Economics or a minor in Economics, who achieved at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and a 3.5 GPA in their economics courses. International applicants will need to demonstrate their proficiency in English speaking and reading.
