Spring 2018 Message from the Department

On behalf of the Department of Psychological Science, we want to welcome you to the Spring 2018 Semester. Throughout the coming academic year, we will be reaching out to you via your school email account. However, we will be relying primarily on our website to keep you up to date on news and events in the department (http://www.easternct.edu/psychology/blog-posts/).

The department is pleased to announce that we are now offering a concentration in Mental Health Counseling and the Child & Youth Concentration is now a Developmental Concentration. Remember that the concentrations are unique for the Bachelor’s Degree. If you have any interest in changing concentrations, you should pick up the form (outside of the Department Office) and meet with an advisor in that concentration (this information is on the department webpage).

We have several events planned for this semester. If you have met the requirements for Psi Chi, you will be receiving an invitation from a faculty member over the next 2 weeks.

We will be holding our first Psychology Graduate School Fair in the Betty Tipton Room on April 5th between 6-7pm. More details will be posted on our website as they become available.

On April 23rd we will hold our Honors Night in the Betty Tipton Room starting at 6pm. We will be inducting members into our chapter of Psi Chi, The International Honor Society in Psychology and recognizing students who have met the criteria for our departmental honors distinction.

On May 4th the CSU Psychology Day will be held at Central Connecticut State University. Students who have research they have completed should talk their faculty member about the possibility of presenting at this event.

For any students who will be graduating in May or August of 2018, the dates and times for the Exit Exam sessions (which is a graduation requirement for Psychology majors) are listed below. You will be receiving email notification to save the date very soon and later in the semester you will receive notification to sign up for a session. If you have any questions, email Dr. Keyes at keyesme@easternct.edu.
