Psi Chi: National Honor Society in Psychology
Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929. Currently approximately 1,100 colleges and universities have Psi Chi chapters. According to the national website, Psi Chi was organized to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship, and to advance the science of psychology.
Psi Chi provides academic recognition to its inductees by membership, and our WSSU chapter works to offer opportunities for students to develop scholarly skills through enlightened discussion, research-based activities, and networking with other developing scholars. Our Psi Chi chapter works to augment and enhance the regular curriculum in Psychology and to provide practical experience and fellowship through affiliation with the chapter.
Membership is open to Psychology majors and other students who are making the study of psychology one of their important interests, and who meet the minimum qualifications. Members must:
- Be Psychology Majors or Minors,
