Funding

The Graduate Program in Communication offers several opportunities to finance your education.  Most funding is provided in the form of teaching assistantships, although research positions are occassionally available.  Teaching or research assistantships are offered for four semesters of master’s work and eight to ten semesters of doctoral work, provided the student is making sustained progress toward the degree.  Presently, our full-time teaching assistants receive the following compensation and benefits:

  • Stipends between $12,000 (M.A.) and $16,000 - $17,000 (Ph.D.)
  • In-state and out-of-state tuition waivers
  • Qualification for free basic health insurance
