Graduate Assistantships

The PhD Program offers Graduate Assistantships (GAs). These are designed to ensure that doctoral students receive an educational experience that provides opportunities for both faculty supervised research activities and teaching. Priority for GAs is given to students in their first three years in the program. Graduate Assistantships include tuition waiver, health insurance, and a stipend.
