Psychology Honor Societies & Organizations

Psi Chi

Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology. The organization was founded in 1929 for the stated purpose of “encouraging, stimulating, and maintaining excellence in scholarship and advancing the science of Psychology.”

The criteria for induction into the society are as follows:

  • Must be a psychology major
  • Must be at least in your junior year
  • Must have completed at least four Psychology courses
  • Must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 in their Psychology classes
  • Must be in the top 25% of your class overall

Psychology Society

The purpose of the Psychology Society is to unify Psychology majors in order to promote communication between students and faculty, and between students and the surrounding community.

In addition, the Society enhances students’ awareness of future options (i.e., career and post-graduate work) via meetings and presentations, and also serves as a social atmosphere where students and faculty can meet informally.

All Psychology majors of Stonehill College and any interested undeclared students are eligible for membership.
