New Cairo Campus

Workshops and Events

The Hub for Action and Research in Psychology (HARP) vision is to regularly host various workshops and events that cater to faculty and student needs. These are designed to enhance professional and research skills, help students make informed career-related decisions, provide a glimpse into faculty and student research, and expose the University community to renowned regional and international faculty. Below is a list and description of this semester’s workshops and events. 

Registration at least two days in advance is required for workshops. If you would like to attend a workshop, register here. You may register for as many workshops as you wish. However, space is limited. Priority is given to The American University in Cairo (AUC) psychology majors and minors, graduate students, and faculty members, particularly those who have not previously attended a workshop.
