Graduate Assistantships in Student Affairs

Graduate students have the ability to practice professional skills by serving as a graduate assistant in a student affairs area or partner area. Based on the individual department, students may engage in program development and planning, student advising, administrative support, student mentoring, supervising, and more. Becoming a graduate assistant enables you to apply the theory you learn in your graduate program into practice.

To be considered for a graduate assistantship in Student Affairs, students must be admitted or enrolled in a graduate program at the University of Miami.
