Why should I join?

Psi Chi has made some exciting changes! Now there are two ways for you to engage in exciting opportunities that can also help prepare you for the future! In addition to our classic Psi Chi membership, we have a new option: PSYCHOLOGY CLUB MEMBERSHIP!!! The goal of this membership is to bring things such as networking, workshops, guest speakers, and mentorship to ALL who are passionate about psychology. While Psi Chi meetings have always been open to non-members, now Psychology Club members will be able to earn prizes, join leadership, and list membership on their curriculum vitae (resume). While Psi Chi members enjoy benefits from the international organization, Psychology Club membership is a great idea for those who are unable to join Psi Chi at this time or those that just want a fun way to interact with driven, like-minded individuals who love psychology.

More about our organization

Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology, was founded in 1929 with a mission to encourage excellence in scholarship and advance the science of psychology. More than 700,000 lifetime members have joined in this worthwhile cause including Distinguished Members such as Drs. Albert Bandura, B. F. Skinner, and Phillip Zimbardo. A few popular Membership Benefits include international recognition for academic excellence, as well as access to our three publications and more than $400,000 in annual awards and grants.
