Psychology Club meetings are held once a month.
Membership of the Psychology Club at USCL is open to all students who have an interest in psychology. The main benefit of becoming a Psychology Club member is the opportunity to become familiar with career directions in the field, and with professionals on and off campus. As follows, the goals that guide the topics that are covered in Psychology Club meetings are as follows:
- To promote interest and knowledge of different sub disciplines in psychology
- To familiarize students with the psychology faculty at USCL
- To familiarize students with the teaching and research styles of professionals at other universities through the Psychology Club Lecture Series
- To provide a platform to induct new members into the national honors society, Psi Beta
- To provide guidance to undergraduate students seeking potential admission to a graduate program in psychology
- To inform students of opportunities to volunteer or work on campus and in the community
- To develop a research topic and plan a research design for presentation at the annual South Carolina Psychological Association (SCPA) conference in Myrtle Beach, SC
