11 Psi Chi

Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 for the purposes of encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship, and advancing the science of psychology. Psi Chi functions as a federation of chapters located at over 1,090 senior colleges and universities in the USA, Canada and Ireland. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate students who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests, and who meet the minimum GPA qualifications. Psi Chi serves two major goals: first, to provide academic recognition to its inductees by the mere fact of membership. Second, to nurture the spark of that accomplishment by offering a climate congenial to members’ creative development. For example, the chapters make active attempts to nourish professional growth through programs designed to enhance the regular curriculum and to provide practical experience and fellowship. In addition, Psi Chi holds Society and regional conventions annually in conjunction with the psychological associations, research award competitions, and certificate recognition programs. All moderated Psychology students are invited to apply!
