Psychology Club

What is the Psychology Club?

The College of Charleston Psychology Club was formed in order to allow those interested in the field of psychology the opportunity to interact socially and academically. The club's principal goal is to expose students to a variety of psychology-related topics, fields and events. 

During the past years, we have sponsored a number of speakers who discussed their research interests and professional experiences. In previous years, the Psychology Club organized and partially sponsored trips to major regional and collegiate conferences, enabling its members the opportunity to attend professional presentations, socialize with others in the field and to get to know other College of Charleston students and professors, away from the school setting.

Additionally, the Psychology Club works toward assisting students in reaching their academic and professional goals. We provide information on getting into graduate school, advice regarding the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) and opportunities for volunteer work.

How do I become a member?

There is only one requirement for becoming a member of the Psychology Club – that is an interest in learning more about psychology. The club was established so that all students who have an interest in psychology, majors or not, can learn more about the field and what it has to offer. Anyone with an interest in the field is encouraged to attend meetings and become a part of the club's organizational committee.  To learn more about joining Psychology Club, email them at or contact the faculty advisor, Dr. Doughty (

Join us as an active committee member or by utilizing the numerous speakers and events that we sponsor each semester. There is no membership fee!
