The Harvard Extension School Psychology Student Society (HES PSS)  is dedicated to fostering professional development, supporting networking opportunities, and promoting knowledge-sharing among students and individuals interested in psychology, neuropsychology, and neuroscience. All members of the Harvard community, as well as the general public, are welcome to participate in the society’s events, which cover topics such as mental health, learning and behavioral conditions, and related Harvard courses, degrees, certificates, and events. HES PSS encourages members to actively engage in the group, share experiences and ideas, and ask questions.  

This society envisions a dynamic community of students, faculty, and professionals who can exchange information and insights about the field, courses, and research conducted at Harvard. In addition to hosting events with experts in the field, HES PSS plans to invite psychology professors to speak about their work and research and offer educational sessions on topics related to psychology and therapeutic methods for mental health.

HES PSS also hopes to raise awareness about the importance of proper research methods and promote multidisciplinary research that leverages psychology as a resource for other fields of study. Ultimately, HES PSS seeks to enhance the recognition of the contributions made by psychology to research and to provide a supportive community for all those interested in the field.
