Psychology Club / Honor Society

The Psychology Club offers all psychology majors and minors the opportunity to belong to a group of students with similar interests and goals. You will want to join immediately and participate in the activities. This is the first step toward Psi Chi membership and one way to demonstrate your interest and leadership in the Psychology department.

Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 to advance the science of psychology. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate men and women who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests, and who meet the minimum qualifications. Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Association for Psychological Science (APS).

The Psi Chi Constitution requires that undergraduate student applicants to the Chowan Chapter of Psi Chi:

  • Must be enrolled as a student at Chowan.
  • Must have established a GPA at Chowan.
  • Must be at least a second-semester sophomore.
  • Must be enrolled as a major or minor in a psychology program or a program psychological in nature that is equivalent to a psychology major.
  • Must have completed at least 9 semester hours in that discipline.
  • Must have an overall GPA that is in the top 35% of their class based on rankings within sophomore, junior, and senior classes (if the cut-off for the top 35% is below 3.00, the applicant must have an overall GPA of at least 3.00 on a 4-point scale).
  • Must have a psychology GPA that is at least 3.00 on a 4-point scale.

We encourage all our students to strive for the lifetime membership in Psi Chi. It is not only an honor but is a valuable addition to your graduate school application and/or resume.
