Over 165 students joined us at the 2019 Biannual Psychology Undergraduate Student Conference (Psych-Con) at the Biscayne Bay Campus.

Attendees learned how to market their Psychology degree, how to craft a proper resume, how to brand themselves professionally and had the opportunity to take LinkedIn headshots. Throughout the day they heard from FIU Psychology graduate students and discovered different career paths within the field.

Our students also networked with the following employers or graduate school programs:

  • City Year Miami
  • Miami-Dade Corrections & Rehabilitation Department
  • Progressive Behavioral Science
  • We-Therapy/World Evolve Therapy
  • Summer Treatment Program
  • Lotus Behavioral Interventions
  • 211 Miami
  • Nova Southeastern University
  • Carlos Albizu University
  • Counselor Education: Rehabilitation Counseling
  • FIU College of Law
  • Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing & Health Science
  • Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work
  • MS in Professional Counseling Psychology
  • MS in Organizational Science
  • Psychology Ambassadors for Student Success (PASS)
  • PsiChi National Honor Society
