The Psychology Collective

"The Psychology Collective" is a collaboration between the three psychology-related student organizations at Hunter College: The Psychology Club, The Hunter Chapter of Psi Chi - The National Honor Society in Psychology, and Psych News, the Official Publication of The Psychology Collective, a semesterly newsletter.

The purpose of The Psychology Collective is to encourage, stimulate and maintain excellence in scholarship for its members, especially in the field of psychology, and to aid the advancement and knowledge of psychology in all its specializations. It is also dedicated to improving the overall well-being of its members and the Hunter College community through social events and various seminars, workshops and field trips, culminating in the Annual Hunter College Psychology Convention every spring.

The Psychology Collective welcomes students from all disciplines and backgrounds who are interested in psychological issues.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the Psychology Club or Psi Chi, writing for Psych News, or would like to find out more about what The Psychology Collective is about, please visit the Psychology Department Office (611 Hunter North) for a Psychology Club registration sheet.
