10 Universities Where TAs Teach The Most Classes
from U.S. News & World Report
College students: Don't expect to always see a professor standing at the front of your classroom. At some research universities, a teaching assistant — usually a graduate student — might either serve as the main instructor for an undergraduate course or provide support to the professor. There were 121,120 graduate teaching assistants employed at colleges, universities and professional schools in 2015, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Though some students prefer to learn from an experienced professor rather than a TA with little experience, one 2016 study found undergraduates are more likely to major in a discipline if a graduate student teaches their first course in the subject.
