Happy Holidays from COGS!


Participants Needed for a Research Study


“A lot of pain literature has focused on escape from pain, but chronic pain patients don’t have that choice. They have to wake up every morning and decide if they want to face their pain and go grocery shopping, or go to their job, or get any kind of reward.” Dr. Amber Harris-Bozer is leading an incredibly innovative research study at Tarleton through the new EEG lab on the Stephenville campus. Learn more in our recent blog post about research taking place through Tarleton’s Applied Psychology program, and how you can contribute to the study.  (No pain is inflicted on participants.)

Through Tarleton’s Continuing Education program you can be fully prepared to take the GRE.  In a two part format,  the GRE preparation courses prepare students to excel on exam day and to achieve the best potential score!  Each part runs for six weeks, with a two-week grace period at the end.
