Did you Know… About our Departmental Want Ads?
If you’re interested in research or teaching assistantships, internships, or even volunteer work, you should check out the Human Development and Psychology Want Ads, a website where faculty post these opportunities. This is a particularly good time to look because most faculty members are looking for their fall semester assistants right now! Keep in mind that not all professors will post openings on the website, so if you don’t see someone listed, you may want to visit the faculty links on the Human Development and Psychology websites, see if that person indicates whether or not he or she usually works with RAs or TAs, and then e-mail the individual to express your interest.

Don’t forget, though, that these are just internal positions, and that the Phoenix Recruitment Online (PRO) System through Career Services http://www.uwgb.edu/careers/connections/pro.asp is where your job search should start. We also have very few internal internship positions. Your internship search might also involve PRO and the list of some of our past internships, but it should begin by making sure you meet pre-requisites and by talking with a faculty member and reviewing the internship policy.
In this feature, we address Winterim courses. Did you know…that you can take a course over the Winterim session to speed up your graduation date? We are not offering any psychology or human development courses this winterim, but there are several courses that would count toward your gen ed requirements. Winterim courses are not a part of tuition plateau and all are Internet-based courses. To see a complete list of which courses are being offered, go to the Schedule of Classes, change the term to Fall 2012, and change class type to January interim.
In this feature, we address courses outside your major or minor. Did you know…that you can take courses outside your major or minor to make yourself more marketable for jobs and/or grad school? You can also take courses that are personally relevant. Many students find that they need to take classes beyond their Gen. Ed. and major/minor requirements to fulfill the 120 credits needed to graduate. Why not take some classes in business, English, political science, etc.? These outside courses may allow you to stand out from other job and grad school applicants, develop expertise in other areas, and maybe even spark new interests.
Did you know…there is an application process for graduation? Even if you do not plan to participate in the ceremony, you need to complete the on-line application to graduate within SIS. Doing so triggers the Registrar’s Office to conduct a degree audit to see if you have met/will meet by your graduation date all the requirements for graduation. It’s important to do this early enough that you could actually be notified if you were missing a requirement before you begin your final semester (and while you can still make changes to your schedule). That means December graduates should apply after they register for classes but before May 1. May graduates are to apply after they register for spring classes but before December 1, and August graduates apply after registering for summer classes but before February 1. Find out more here.
