Student Organizations

The Psychology Department boasts two active student organizations, a chapter of Psi Chi, the national honors society in psychology, and the UW-W Psychology Club. These organizations provide a means for majors and minors to get to know each other outside of the classroom and to learn more about careers and graduate study in psychology and how to prepare for them at UW-Whitewater. The Psychology Club and Psi Chi sponsor member outings, student-faculty get-togethers, service projects, and guest speakers.

UW-W Psychology Club

Students at MPA 2011Purpose 

Psychology Club is a student organization for all psychology majors, minors, and those interested in the field. Our mission is to be an educational and networking resource for those on campus interested in Psychology. We discuss topics such as psychological research, psychology related internships, counseling psychology, clinical psychology, I/O psychology, and other various professions in psychology. We have several guest speakers throughout the year and fundraise to support our annual trip to the Midwestern Psychological Association conference in Chicago.

Club member meetings

Meetings are held on campus every other Tuesday from 5-6pm.

For more information regarding Psychology Club meeting dates and times, please visit the Psychology Club Facebook page or contact Dr. Brandon Thomas.
