Graduate students

Graduate students in the Department of Geography are funded in a variety of ways. Funding is limited to two years M.S. students, to four years for Ph.D. students, and to five years for five-year Ph.D. students. Graduate assistantships consist of either teaching assistantships (TAs) or research assistantships (RAs). During the fall and spring semesters, the assistantships are 18 weeks in length each semester, with duties beginning one week before classes begin and concluding one week after the last day of class. TAs and RAs work 20 hours per week on average. Read more about graduate assistantships and funding in the Graduate Student Handbook.
