Tuition and Fees

The University of Nevada offers an excellent value for graduate work. In-state tuition and mandatory fees for the three-semester master’s degree in journalism totals approximately $11,227 for 3 semesters as a graduate student with an average semester course load of 9 credits.


Tuition with Graduate Assistantship

A limited number of graduate assistantships, requiring either teaching or research assistance or both, are available for qualified students. Historically, we’ve been able to offer assistantships to the students we’ve admitted who have applied by the March 15th deadline. Graduate assistants work between 10 and 20 hours per week and earn between $775 and $1,550 a month. Students on assistantships receive reduced rates for tuition and out-of-state fees are waived. Other mandatory fees and international student fees are not waived, however, nor do assistantships cover differential costs for specialized classes.

If you are interested in applying for a graduate assistantship please indicate in your cover letter to the Graduate Director (Howard Goldbaum) and on your graduate application.
