Because you are no longer an undergraduate student, your interactions with the faculty members in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience will differ from the typical faculty-undergraduate interactions. As a graduate student, you are not only a student of the SBS faculty; you are also a junior collaborator and colleague. This is a privilege, but it comes with added responsibility. Undergraduate students are, for the most part, told exactly what to do in order to complete the requirements for their degrees. As a graduate student, it is up to YOU to determine your career path. For example, if you want to enter a doctoral program in psychology, you should be sure to conduct plenty of research, and you should study extensively for the GRE. If you plan to enter a research position in industry, you might consider taking extra courses in statistics. As faculty members, we see our graduate students as budding colleagues who can direct their own careers. Naturally, we are happy to advise and help you along the way! One person who may be able to provide you with particularly useful advice is the Research Coordinator; this professor knows a great deal about the latest available funding sources for various areas of study in psychology—including funding awards for graduate students! You should be sure to conduct yourselves professionally, of course, but we also want you to feel comfortable approaching us for general advice, discussions about your research, or concerns about your career goals.
