The PNB Mentorship Program provides an avenue for connecting new students and upper year students. The PNB Ambassador Program allows select students to be the liaison between different cohorts of the PNB program, and to aid in the promotion and carrying out of events. The purpose of the PNB Society is to provide resources to interested students not only within the program, but within the larger campus community that shares an interest in psychology as well. The goal of the McMaster PNB Society is to encourage students to make the most of all the educational opportunities the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour offers, and to become involved in social events and activities that create and enhance relationships between and within cohorts.

McMaster Association of Religious Studies
The purpose of the McMaster Association of Religious Studies is to create connections between students and faculty in the Religious Studies Program at McMaster University, to encourage the pursuit of Religious Studies as an interest and a profession, and to provide the opportunity to better understand religions and their role on shaping society. The symbol on the logo is popularly known as the “flower of life.” The symbol is an example of sacred geometry, which many religious traditions use as a tool to conceptualize their connectivity to the world around them. It is a symbol of both spirituality and scientific logic; and so it represents our goal to explore the various forms of logic expressed in the religious experience.
