What you DO beyond the classroom matters!

Check out the opportunities that UMKC’s Department of Psychology offers you beyond the traditional classroom setting. You will gain experience, form relationships with your peers and faculty and make your resume or CV stand out from the crowd.

When you are looking to fill our an elective, consider extending your education by enrolling in undergraduate research (Psych 490 & Psych 491) or doing a community-based Internship for course credit at one of many local community agencies.

Our department also sponsors two undergraduate clubs that are part of the Student Government Association: Psi-Chi (the National Honors’ Society in Psychology) and Psychology Club. Both of these organizations provide opportunities for students to network, increase their knowledge in small learning settings and volunteer in the community. Each organization is student run which means they provide opportunities for student leadership as well.
