The Department of Sociology at Michigan State University offers competitive multi-year funding packages. Most students secure funding in the form of a ½ time Graduate Assistantship as either a Teaching Assistant (TA) or Research Assistant (RA) upon acceptance into our doctoral program or during their tenure in our program. Specific TA or RA duties depend on the course and research project and require an average of twenty hours of work each week during the semester.
The Graduate School offers fellowship programs that provide financial support for outstanding students who plan to enroll in a doctoral or master of fine arts program. Links to these resources are below.
