Graduate and Teaching Assistantships
Our department awards 3-5 graduate assistantship (GA) and 3-4 teaching assistantship (TA) positions each year. The included stipend can significantly offset the cost of completing your degree while you gain a more in-depth perspective and valuable learning and teaching experience in the biological sciences.
The majority of our graduate students are awarded departmental research grants and travel scholarships. These donor-funded programs increase the variety of available research topics and enhance the opportunities for you to grow as a professional biologist. Our department even has a 4WD truck for use in field-based research projects.
The five branches of our Angelo State Natural History Collections contain nearly 100,000 specimens of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, plants and genomic resources, and our Mammals Collection is the fourth-largest in Texas. Our ASU Greenhouse includes three different biomes that sustain hundreds of plant species from around the world. These and our other lab facilities offer you extensive resources for hands-on learning and research.
