Study Skills Support

Would you like to manage your time better? Prepare for tests more effectively? Take better notes? Feel less stressed about keeping up with your homework?

We see students who are on the dean's list, as well as students who are on academic probation. Anyone who would like to get more out of his/her studies is welcome to be part of our study skills program and Methods of Inquiry, our study skills course.

Individual Study Skills Support

Our confidential study skills support offers you individual discussions with a consultant who will help you improve your academic performance and efficiency. Your consultant will meet with you, discuss your concerns, and help you discover learning techniques that will enable you to enhance your overall academic performance. All appointments with study skills consultants are free, and you may meet with them for a one-time troubleshooting session or on a regular basis.

Study Skills Course

In addition to individual sessions, study skills consultants teach a six-week course, CAS 142, Methods of Inquiry, each semester. This course focuses on issues such as time management, stress, test-taking strategies and motivation that are relevant to learning effectively. This is a workshop-style class in which students will be required to submit a number of short assignments and a short final essay; students will also be asked to give an in-class presentation at the end of the course.
