Graduate Studies

Left Quote I think that we have the best of both worlds here at Miami: My mentor has given me the resources, training, and support that I need to be research productive, but there's also great opportunities for gaining training and experience with teaching. I know of very few departments where grad students can gain formal training to teach but also have great resources for research.      Right Quote

Fully-funded graduate assistantship and tuition waiver guaranteed for 5 years

Stipend for all students is approximately $ 18,394 (2022-2023). 

Graduate student support includes a tuition waiver including most (but not all) instructional fees. Stipends are consistent with the cost of living in Oxford, OH. Principal investigators may provide additional support, as available.

To earn this support, graduate students serve as Graduate Assistants (GA), supporting the teaching and research of an assigned faculty member or Teaching Assistants (TA), serving as instructor of record for a course in the department.

Clinical students typically spend 2-3 years on clinical placements in the region that provide the same level of support. Once admitted, students may also apply to a number of awards and scholarships from the graduate school.
