What is 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. Membership is open to graduate and undergraduate students who are making the study of psychology one of their major or minor interests and who meet the minimum qualifications of class standing and academic achievement. Psi Chi is a member of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Psychological Society (APS).

Psi Chi functions as a federation of chapters located at more than 875 senior colleges and universities in the USA. More than three-quarters of a million lifetime members have joined Psi Chi, many of which have gone onto distinguished careers. A few popular Membership Benefits include international recognition for academic excellence, as well as access to psychology-related publications, resources for career and graduate school, and annual awards and grants.

The Rutgers-Camden chapter of Psi Chi functions as an honors society and a student group. The group is led by student leaders with the support of faculty advisers. Psi Chi organizes regular meetings, campus events, and service projects. We are always looking for students to take on leadership roles in Psi Chi. We welcome new ideas, diverse perspectives, and broad representation of social identities and cultural backgrounds. We invite applications for membership two times per academic year: each Fall and Spring semester. Students are encouraged to apply if they meet the following requirements:
