Estimated Graduate Student Budget

Entering DANM graduate students are offered financial assistance at the time of admission, based on the strength of their application. Continuing students are informed of their financial support before the beginning of their second-year of study. The most common form of financial support is through teaching assistantships and tuition remissions. Limited graduate assistantships and teaching opportunities may also be available. We make every effort to offer support packages that are competitive with other top programs and to secure ongoing funding for our students.
