Over the past 20 years, the South Carolina Psychological Association has hosted hundreds of students, professors, and other psychology professionals and leaders at our annual Academic Day events.

The 2018 Academic Day will feature:

  • A keynote address by Dr. Gil Einstein, Professor of Psychology at Furman University
  • “Enhancing Learning and Memory:  Remembering More Without Studying More”
  • A panel discussion of graduate school opportunities in psychology and related fields
  • Research blitz – a series of brief presentations will be made by faculty from institutions across the state showcasing their ongoing research projects
  • Student quiz bowl competition
  • The highlight of the event is the quiz bowl, in which teams of students representing their respective schools put their knowledge of psychology to the test in a competition for statewide bragging rights and a cash prize ($75 1st place, $50 2nd place, $25 3rd place).
