How to Apply and Teaching Assistantships


"My Master's program at Murray State was better than I could have asked for. The classes were small and intimate, and the professors were always willing to teach what I wanted to learn. While completing my MS in Math, I grew to be both a better student and a better instructor thanks to the amazing professors who helped me along the way."

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 the Teaching Assistantship application 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.
