Want to get involved?

Being a psychology major is about more than what goes on in the classroom! It is important for psychology majors considering graduate school to get some research experience outside of the classroom. Consider helping out with Psi Chi, the Psychology Club (see Dr. Bips), or doing community service .  Also consider doing research! As a psychology major, you have lots of opportunities to do research.
