Graduate Assistantships

For those who will be starting your graduate work in the fall semester (either in the Nutrition Education or Dietetic Internship Option), the MSND program has three specific assistantships available: two who assist faculty in undergraduate coursework (specifically teaching the introductory Food Selection and Preparation course), and one who coordinates the nutrition education efforts on campus. 

If you are interested, applications for Graduate Assistantships are due to Dr. Melanie Tracy Burns by February 15.  Graduate assistantships within the School of Family and Consumer Sciences are available for the following academic year (August - May). For a description of the different graduate assistantships offered in the School of Family and Consumer Sciences, click here.

Complete graduate assistantship applications include the following components:

  • Completed online Graduate Assistant application from the Graduate School, including which graduate assistantship you are most interested in and why as a part of the "Experience" category
