The MS in Mathematics program has support for graduate students in the form of teaching and research assistantships. If you are interested in applying or learning more, please Contact the Graduate Program!
A number of teaching assistantships are awarded every year to support students pursuing the Master of Science in Mathematics. The assistantship includes a waiver of all fees and tuition, student health insurance, and a stipend of $15,400 to cover living expenses.
Important Notice: It is a program requirement that graduate students holding a teaching assistantship have to be enrolled with at least 9 credits in classes towards the degree (meaning that those credits can be used for the MS in mathematics degree). Moreover those students, which have been awarded a teaching assistantship, must take the class MATH 579 (Teaching College Mathematics) when they begin their teaching assistantship, or as soon as possible. Exceptions are possible when it can be verified that she or he has sufficient experience in teaching at the College level.
Faculty periodically have funding available for research fellowships. These fellowships will also include a waiver of all fees and tuition, student health insurance, and a stipend to cover living expenses.
