You may be able to enrich your undergraduate academic experience by assisting with a class. Undergraduate teaching assistants (UTAs) earn hourly wages or credit while gaining professional experience during their senior year.
Qualified undergraduate UTAs work directly with professors to support the department’s teaching mission. Assisting peers and modeling successful academic practices offers many rewards. UTAs develop communication and leadership skills and insight into how people learn. They also gain a deeper appreciation of the subject matter and develop a working relationship with a faculty mentor.
