We encourage students in our department’s clubs to apply for either or both of the Annual Steven Rosengarten Memorial Scholarships. Eligibility and essay dates are available at the MCC Foundation Office in Center IV.
Students in these clubs begin professional networking activities. Often these members develop friendships and contacts that last throughout their professional careers.
The Psychology Club is a student organization for anyone interested in Psychology.
We meet a couple of times a month and it is a great way to meet new people and learn more about Psychology. We have discussions about what you can do with a major or career in Psychology. We also discuss research in Psychology, host guest speakers, watch movies related to Psychology and have fundraiser activities and social events. In the past we even went to a Broadway show together! Usually, refreshments are provided at the meetings.
You don’t need to be a psychology major to join the club. If you have an interest in psychology and meeting new people then this club is for you! The best way to know about our events is to follow us on Facebook. You can also join our mailing list to get updates of meetings and events. If you have any questions about the club or would like to be added to our mailing list, please contact Professor Quillen. The Psi Beta honors society is an honors society for students who are part of the psychology club and who meet certain academic standards. Read more about the Psi Beta Honors Society.
