Psychfest!

Following tradition, Psychfest is an annual event where second-year MA and new PhD students present their research to the entire department. It’s the only opportunity for students to share their work with everyone in the Psychology department—a rare and exciting occasion for each student.

2021 | April 30 & May 1

The theme for this year’s Psychfest is Cyber(punk) Chic – with a nod to Vancouver’s own William Gibson who launched the cyberpunk aesthetic back in the early 1980s.

Plan to jack into the matrix in high cyber-style and immerse yourself in the data of this year’s MA2s and PhD1s!
