Teaching Assistantships

Teaching assistants are an integral part of meeting the teaching and student success mission in NHS. Teaching assistantships help develop communication skills with students, and eventually the public, who may not be familiar with nutrition and health sciences concepts. Being a teaching assistant is a time to shadow and network with faculty as well as develop teaching skills. In NHS, most teaching assistantships are awarded starting in the first year of graduate studies. The number of teaching assistantships is limited based on available funding and student interest. Be sure to let your faculty advisor know of your interest in developing proficiency in teaching.
