Another funded MA opportunity

Recommended Posts

This came in today on the IE-L listserv. If you have forensics experience it's a good opportunity.


The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) is seeking applicants for a forensics graduate assistantship, starting in Fall 2016.  This is a two-year position which provides a monthly stipend for coaching, in-state tuition waiver, and funded conference travel opportunities.  Unlike many programs, forensics graduateassistants are not required to teach courses in the department in addition to their coaching obligations.  The UTEP forensics program is relatively small (10-12 students, on average), and competes in parliamentary debate and individual events.  We welcome applicants with experience in either or both.

The Department of Communication at UTEP offers an M.A. in communication studies.  This position is ideal for those seeking a smaller department that emphasizes close mentorship with well-respected scholars in the field.  Our faculty includes several prominent scholars whose research interests include: rhetoric, environmental communication, critical-cultural studies, gender, health communication, public participation, and intercultural communication.  There are numerous opportunities for funded, international research and the department is currently working to develop a Ph.D. program in communication.

UTEP is located in El Paso, TX, which is situated on the US-Mexico border, and is part of the largest international metroplex in the world.  The University has recently celebrated its centennial and has been ranked as one of the top 10 universities in the United States by Washington Monthly (including a #1 ranking for promoting student social mobility).  The El Paso region is one of the fastest growing areas of the country and boasts a robust multicultural environment.

If you are interested in applying or would like more information about the program, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at: catarin@utep.edu<mailto:catarin@utep.edu>. The departmental deadline for application is April 1, 2016, but early applications are highly encouraged.  For more information about the department and team please visit: http://academics.utep.edu/Default.aspx?alias=academics.utep.edu/comm
