The Psychology community at Cornell is large and offers several opportunities to be involved, develop professional skills, and to network. Here are some of the ways you can get involved.
Psi Chi is the International Honors Society in Psychology. Being a part of this organization gives you exclusive opportunities for professional development in psychology and related fields, and is an opportunity to meet other students interested in these areas.
The Cognition and Neural Systems (CNS) Journal Club:
You can enroll in the CNS Journal Club for graduate or undergraduate credit (1 CR, S/U) as a Topics in Biopsychology seminar: PSYCH 6271. The course requires that you present at least once during the semester and participate actively overall. You are welcome to attend without enrolling, of course, but we do appreciate you enrolling if you plan to attend the whole semester and to present.
Meets on Tuesdays from 11:45 to 1:00 pm in Uris Hall 205.
The conference is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to experience a professional conference in the field, to share and present their work, and to meet other students and learn about the various kinds of exciting, cutting-edge work being conducted here at Cornell.

These lectures are held most Friday afternoons (from 12:20-1:30; location for the 2021-22 academic year TBA) and are open to the Cornell community. Undergraduates are encouraged to attend our departmental colloquium.
Graduate Research Seminar

Undergraduates are welcomed and encouraged to attend our departmental colloquium and the Graduate Research Seminar.
The Psychology Department has established a Google group, Psychology Internships and Positions, to disseminate information about psychology research assistant positions, summer internships, full-time positions in research labs, clinical opportunities, etc.
