The Department offers approximately 55 teaching assistantships. Assistantships for Masters students are currently $14,000 for the nine month academic year, and they are $18,000 for Ph.D. students for the nine month academic year. Summer support ranging from $1,000-$2,000 is also available. New and incoming students are encouraged to participate in our Summer Head Start Program which begins the last week of June and carries a stipend of $1,000 for the six week session. In most circumstances, a tuition scholarship is given to students receiving a stipend from the department.
The majority of our full-time students are fully funded as teaching assistants within our department. Additional graduate assistantships may also be available outside of the mathematics and statistics department. See bgsu.edu/graduate/graduate-assistantships.html for more information. Additional financial support in the form of fellowships, scholarships and awards is also available, see bgsu.edu/graduate/fellowships-scholarships-and-awards.html.
All classes taught by the Department are small individual sections of 30 or fewer students -- we offer no large lecture classes. Teaching assistants are assigned small individual classes in calculus, pre-calculus, or statistics (MATH 1310 and below). This involves five to six contact hours per week with undergraduate students.
