Teaching assistantships are offered to qualified applicants. Graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) work with the faculty and conduct recitation and laboratory sections. First-year graduate students are generally supported as GTAs. A typical GTA package includes tuition, fees, and a stipend. Stipends are adjusted periodically to ensure that they are competitive.
For more information, contact our graduate program assistant.
Research assistantships are offered to qualified applicants. The research conducted in the department is supported by external funds. Graduate students performing research on these projects are supported as research assistants. Graduate research assistants (GRAs) are not assigned to teaching duties. The stipend and benefits are the same as those for GTAs.
