Psychology Club is the campus club dedicated to serving students with an interest in psychology, regardless of their major. The mission of the Psychology Club is to provide a social environment in which students are provided relevant information to connect them with psychology faculty at Missouri State, promote the understanding of psychology as a human science, and provide students information relevant to graduate school, career opportunity, and research opportunities at Missouri State. Most of the meetings include speakers on various topics of interest in psychology. Participating in Psychology Club is a great way to meet and talk with other people with similar goals and interests. It is also an excellent source of information for anyone who is still deciding on a profession or plans to attend graduate school.
