News, Resources and Student Activities

The Psychology Department faculty strongly encourages student research. There are opportunities within the curriculum to learn research methods and engage in research projects. Beyond the curriculum, there are opportunities to become involved in the Psychology Club and Psi Chi.

The student led Psi Chi honor society and the Pace Psychology Club provide resume-building professional experiences outside the classroom. Members attend lectures, professional meetings, and colloquia. By getting involved, you can make new friends and develop a network of colleagues.  Every spring, seniors and juniors can participate in the annual Psychology Conference sponsored by the Psychology Department on our NYC campus. Student presentations at the Psychology Conference are of high professional quality. This is an opportunity to learn how to present papers and research posters in a professional and scientific setting.
