Teaching assistantships

Many of our students help support themselves with a graduate teaching assistantship. Teaching assistants:

  • teach one class per semester and have duties at the mathematics lab
  • are eligible to pay in-state tuition
  • are paid about $9000 per year
  • are normally renewable for up to two years.

To apply for a teaching assistantship at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, fill out this form and mail or email it to the Graduate Coordinator.

Review of applications starts on March 1st for positions starting in the fall, and October 1st for positions starting in the spring, and continues until all positions are filled.

"I chose the graduate program at Murray State because I knew I would receive the individual time and attention from professors. This was beneficial in challenging me academically and helping me to achieve my professional goals."
