Psychology Symposium Series Continues
by Brian R. Metcalf, Ph.D., associate professor of Psychology

The HPU Psychology program, in association with the HPU chapter of Psi Chi, the National Honor Society for Psychology, and the HPU Psychology Club held its second fall 2007 Psychology Symposium in October.

The highlight of the event was an invited guest lecture by Dr. Robin E.S. Miyamoto, Psy.D., the current president of the Hawai‘i Psychological Association. Miyamoto’s talk was titled “Private Practice and Political Advocacy” and was held in the First Hawaiian Building conference room. More than 70 students and faculty attended.

Miyamoto spoke about many issues pertaining to being in private practice as a psychologist in Hawai‘i as well as the importance of being active as an advocate of the profession at the state and national levels.

The Psychology Symposium Series began in fall 2004 and is a monthly event, during the fall and spring semesters, designed to bring psychology students and faculty together for stimulating presentations, discussion, and socializing. They also serve as “town hall” meetings where announcements regarding program happenings and student and faculty accomplishments are made.
With well over 300 majors, psychology is the most popular major in the College of Liberal Arts and the second largest major at HPU.

The Global Citizenship Student Symposium was held on October 20th, so this seems like an ideal time to tell you more about HPU’s College of International Studies. One of the core elements of HPU’s mission is to prepare graduates to live, work, and learn as active members of a global society. This global perspective is also at the core of international studies, which brings together a number of academic programs that focus on international affairs: majors in anthropology, international relations, international studies, political science; an undergraduate and graduate program in teaching English as a second language (TESL); and minors in geography, Japanese, and Spanish. Courses in other languages are offered as well, including Arabic, Chinese, French, Hawaiian, and Korean. During the 2007-2008 academic year, HPU is hosting a Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant in Arabic. Ms. Imane Bimazough is from Morocco and serves as a cultural ambassador to promote greater understanding of the Arabic language and the Muslim world. [More]
