A unique feature of Master of Arts in Higher Education program at Taylor University is the guaranteed availability of a two-year, paid, on-campus assistantship.

The assistantship program is mandatory – every student, based on his or her personal area of interest, and in consultation with a faculty mentor, is placed in a graduate assistantship position. Each assistantship is designed as an educational experience providing the student with marketable skills as well as a stipend. Stipend amounts for assistantships vary from a minimum of $7,500-$9,000 per year, depending on the specific opportunity and skills requirements. Students with an assistantship in Residence Life also receive housing and seven meals per week.
