M.A. Financial Support
Although MA students are not guaranteed financial support, they may apply for (and often receive) a variety of teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and/or other employment (e.g., advising) within or outside of the Department. MA students who apply for and receive financial support typically do not receive such assistance until their second year.
