Program Highlights



Individual Attention


Students receive one-on-one guidance around their choice of research and goals.


Funding


All full-time students are fully funded for three or more years.

The support I've had to share my work with other scholars really distinguishes MSU. The comprehensive package you get is better than anywhere else.
