Psychological Studies Group (PSG)

The purpose of this club is to help students understand psychology as a science and to share psychological concepts and applications beneficial to college life. Our goal is to break down psychological knowledge to a practical level based on class material and research findings. We believe that psychology can help answer many questions commonly asked during the college years, such as “What are some effective study methods?”, “What research has been done towards techniques that better improve one’s study experience?”, and “What are some possible strategies that can help with coping with life at a university?” With positive well-being as an important aspect of psychology, we hope to improve and better students’ experiences at TUJ.

Club-related activities will be organized and hosted through a joint effort among the PSG leadership and faculty members.  Please join us in our pursuit to spread love for psychology!
