Study Skills

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? Our study skills consultants are here to help! 

There are four main ways to get study skills help:

One-On-One 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 during the fall and spring semesters.

Study Skills Course - CAS 142: Methods of Inquiry

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 that are relevant to learning effectively, such as time management, stress, test-taking strategies, and motivation.

This is a workshop-style class in which students are 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.
