Funding for students in the M.A. in Psychology program may be awarded on a competitive basis for exceptional students. Funding typically takes the form of a graduate assistantship, which is a 10-month contract that provides tuition and fee remission, and a stipend. Graduate assistants are assigned to a faculty member (typically their faculty mentor) and spend 20 hours per week assisting the faculty member with their research activities. Specific duties may vary.
Additional funding may be available for attending key conferences in the field with increase in funding in case the student is presenting scholarly work.
