In the Fall of 1964, the psychology department heads at Acadia, Dalhousie, Mount Allison, Prince of Wales College, St. Dunstan’s, and UNB applied to Science Atlantic for status as a sub-committee on psychology. Ours was the first sub-committee to have a defined terms of reference, and our membership has since grown to 14 universities across the Atlantic region. By 1972, the scheduling of lectures in the region became a regular item of business.
The first student conference was held in Halifax in May 1977. This annual conference continues to be the major undertaking of the Committee. The exchange of information between students and professors each May has served to improve instruction methodology in psychology and to provide faculty and students with a means of enhancing communications for over 30 years.
For 48 years, the Science Atlantic Psychology Committee has helped to improve the undergraduate experience for psychology students and will continue to do so for many years to come.
