Looking for a placement

  • Center for Service Learning and Academic Internships: This is the department with which you will work to navigate your placement, if you do one. You can ask them for a list of sites where they have current agreements (which is needed before a placement can take place), or you can ask them for the paperwork to make a new agreement.

In the department

  • ISA (Instructional Student Assistant): “Under supervision, ISAs in this classification perform teaching, grading or tutoring duties for the majority of work hours in a given appointment in a given academic department or equivalent administrative unit over the course of an academic term. Assignments are made by academic department or equivalent administrative unit by a specific supervisor at a CSU campus. The work may be performed on-campus or at an off-campus public agency or private non-profit organization under an agreement with a campus in the CSU system” (CSU Classification & Qualification Standards).
  • Teaching Associate: “The Teaching Associate classification provides currently enrolled or admitted CSU graduate students with part-time employment offering practical teaching experience in fields related to their advanced study. They teach university courses and may also assist faculty or teaching staff with various professional and technical activities. Work assignments are closely associated with their program of study or the academic department in which they are enrolled” (CSU Classification & Qualification Standards).

On-campus employment

  • California Center for Rural Policy (CCRP): Located on campus, the CCRP employs several Sociology graduate students each year to do data entry and various research projects. It is a great way to get experience putting qualitative and quantitative skills into practice, getting lines for your resume/CV, and can possibly be a placement.
