The Psychology Department hosts a number of events throughout the year, ranging from informational sessions about applying to graduate school or internships, to events that bring in guests from the community to help students better understand the wide variety of career opportunities that a psychology degree can offer them, to a colloquium series consisting of distinguished speakers visiting from other universities who share their current research.

Interested in what events are happening in the near future? Check out our Calendar of Events.

Graduate School Night

The Psychology Department offers a Graduate School Night in the fall semester for students who are thinking about applying to graduate school. This event provides students with an overview of the process of applying to graduate school. It also offers students tips about finding programs that are right for them, writing a strong personal statement, and successfully navigating the interview process. Faculty members in the psychology department will not write letters of recommendation for students who have not attended Graduate School Night. Students who need recommendation letters must attend this event.

Internship Night

Each Fall, the Psychology Department offers an Internship night for students who plan to complete an internship for credit or during the summer. This event walks students through the process of finding an internship, applying for the position, and securing summer funding or signing up for course credit.

Careers Night

We offer two career nights every fall semester to help students understand the wide variety of career opportunities that a psychology degree offers. Careers night connects students with Dr. John Barker of the Career Services office on campus to learn about potential careers that use the skills that they have gained through their psychology degree. A second night focuses specifically on Careers in Mental Health and consists of a panel of local professionals who share their career paths and help to demystify the differences between counseling, clinical, and social work.

Colloquium

Our department is also proud to welcome several distinguished speakers every year, for our colloquium series. Colloquia give students the opportunity to learn directly from influential scholars in the field. In addition, the Psychology Club sponsors one colloquium per year, bringing a student-selected speaker to campus to share his or her research.
