They said it…

“I wanted to share I was recognized by Alabama’s School Counseling Association as the elementary counselor of the year. In my application, I wrote a lot about the national board process and how much it stretched me as a counselor. I contribute so much of that to you and how hard you pushed us to THINK.”

— Elizabeth Shaddix, in an email to Jane Oczkewicz, our National Board facilitator for ECYA COunseling

Change a child’s life through learning. Roam the sidelines of a major sporting event. Help an athlete get back on the field.

All our programs have a good mix of classroom hours and practicum or internship hours. In class you learn how to bring 21st century solutions to 21st century issues. Then, you get out in the field and you make a difference.

No matter what major you choose — or which WSU campus you call home — you’ll emerge ready to hit the ground running in the world of education, kinesiology, or sport. Our graduates make a difference in the communities where they serve.

Graduate Assistantships


Graduate Assistantships

The College of Education offers a limited number of teaching and/or research assistantships to graduate students each year. Assistantships are generally allocated for two years for masters students, and three years for doctoral students pending performance and appropriate funding. Assistantships are awarded for the academic year only, although summer assistantships are occasionally available. Additional research assistantships, funded by specific research projects, may also be available.

Students who desire an assistantship should complete an application and submit it along with their departmental application when seeking admission to the Graduate School. Students who are awarded an assistantship must be involved in full-time study. Full-time study is defined as a minimum of 10 semester hours during the spring or fall term, and three semester hours during the summer session. Generally, students may not hold other employment in or outside the university while holding an assistantship. The amount of time involved in assistantship responsibilities will vary. However, all are contractual agreements between the student and the academic department. The specific agreement will include a description of the time and responsibilities required.

The Office of Graduate Studies provides application information, record-keeping, and program assistance for prospective students and current students in all the College of Education graduate degree programs. The office is located in Cleveland Hall, room 252, on the Pullman campus.
