Psychology Program - Student Clubs

The Psychology program at the Community College of Philadelphia is seeking highly motivated and interested students to re-establish the Psychology Club. The following quote gives a good idea of the benefits of a psychology club to students:

“Psychology clubs to give students a more complete view of the world of psychology. While most of the time in psychology classes is spent reviewing theories and ideas in psychology, psychology clubs tend to focus on the practical application of these theories and ideas; with a focus on student development and engagement.”
- adapted from the APA website

Some of the activities you can participate in through a Psychology club are:

  • Panel discussions about notable topics related to Psychology in the news
