graduate studies

  Our faculty are devoted to mentoring of our graduate students throughout the program. Ph.D. students can expect to be supported fully on teaching assistantships, research assistantships, or fellowships for the duration of their enrollment. For example the department has for several years been funded by the Department of Education to provide GAANN (Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need) fellowships. Exceptionally good students are encouraged and mentored to apply for other national or international fellowships. The department boasts an average time-to-degree for the Ph.D. of 5.5 years, well below the national average.
