Psi Chi, The International Honor Society in Psychology, is an honor society 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. With over 1100 chapters around the world, Psi Chi Honor Society has grown since its founding in 1929 to become the largest honor society associated with a major field of study. 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).
Psi Chi membership serves two major goals: (1) Provide academic recognition to its inductees, and (2) offer a climate congenial to members' creative development. Florida Tech established their Psi Chi honor society chapter in July of 1981 and has a membership of well over 300 to date. All Florida Tech students, undergraduate and graduate, on-campus or online, who choose a major or a minor in Psychology and meet the minimum qualifications are eligible to join Florida Tech’s Psi Chi honor society chapter. All chapters are operated by student officers and faculty advisors. Together they select and induct the members and carry out the honor society’s goals. There are many benefits to membership in Florida Tech’s Psi Chi honor society, including fellowship with members from around the word, and access to publications, grants, and awards. Membership in the Psi Chi honor society is a significant way for Psychology students to distinguish themselves among their peers, colleagues, and academic community.
