Financing Your Degree

Students admitted to the PhD program are generally fully funded because as part of their degree, they will be teaching courses and serving as teaching and research assistants. Funding includes a nine-month stipend, a full tuition scholarship for all required courses, and healthcare.

Our MA program is unfunded, one reason it’s a one-year, 24-hour degree program. We occasionally have a few small tuition scholarships to give out based on merit. And once you’re here there are opportunities to apply for research assistantships or teaching internships that pay a small stipend, and for jobs on campus.
