Financial information

Tuition and fees

The University of Nevada, Reno offers an excellent value for graduate work. In-state tuition and mandatory fees for the three-semester master’s degree in journalism total approximately $11,227 for three 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. Students who apply by the early deadline of February 1 receive top consideration.

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, Kari Barber, and on your graduate application.
