Teaching assistantships are offered by the Department of Psychology and Philosophy. These require teaching or assisting with two courses, a 20-hour per week commitment with a stipend of approximately $11,808 for two semesters. Teaching Assistantships are generally reserved for doctoral students.
Research assistantships are available with faculty members who have research grants.
Other departments offer teaching and administrative assistantships for which psychology students may compete. For example, computer labs on campus hire lab assistants, and residence halls hire dorm counselors. Because of TWU's location within the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, numerous opportunities exist for part-time employment.
For 2009-2010, resident (in-state) graduate students are charged $198.00 per semester hour. Non-resident (out-of-state, international) students are charged $479.00 per semester hour. Check the graduate student catalog for further financial information.
The Department offers scholarships and fellowships for excellence in teaching and service. Students may apply for departmental scholarships and university scholarships. Graduate minority scholarships are also funded by TWU.
