Teaching Assistants (a.k.a. teaching aids) are generally students who have taken at least 12 hours of Sociology and assist a faculty member by, for example, conducting weekly discussion groups, helping with grading, preparing lecture materials, and/or other responsibilities. Students apply to be a TA by filling out a form and/or contacting the instructor. They typically have already taken the course they will be TAing for. Once chosen as a TA, students register for Soc. 289, giving them 3 credits at the 200-level. In a few cases, students may be able to TA for pay instead of for credit. If interested, please contact the instructor or Department Administrator Salli Griggs for details. Permission of the instructor is necessary and an override required.
This Fall, courses likely to need TAs include Soc. 1 (Macias or Fox), Soc. 14 (Kaelber), Soc. 19 (Matsumoto or Khanna), Soc. 95 (Burke), and Soc. 100 (Krymkowski or Strickler).
