Graduate Assistantships

A graduate assistant's responsibilities range from teaching in private studios or lab sections of larger classes, to assisting with accompanying, coordinating, performing, grading, or supervising.

Minimum qualifications include a Bachelor of Music degree (or its equivalent), acceptance for Regular Admission into Western Michigan University (based on undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or above), and admission to the School of Music and a specific Master of Music degree program.  Visit the following Graduate College web pages for additional university-wide information:

The deadline for graduate assistantship applications is February 15, 2015.  Please note that the School of Music is not yet accepting new graduate assistantship applications for 2015-2016.  We are still waiting to have our positions approved for next year.  As soon as they are available, announcements will be posted on this web page.  For reference, below are descriptions of assistantships which were offered last year, but be aware that not all graduate assistantships are available each year.  Contact the appropriate faculty member for more detailed information about possible duties.
