esearch opportunties are available in the Psychology
Department, the Curry School of Education, and the
Medical School. Research assistants (RAs) have the oppor-

students learn important skills not easily taught in the classroom,
such as learning how to: use technical equipment, interact with par-

and graduate students are available to discuss graduate aspirations
and to write letters of recommendations.
