Psi Chi: The International Honor Society in Psychology

What is Psi Chi?
Psi Chi is the International Honor Society in Psychology whose purpose is to recognize, encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of students of psychology. To achieve these goals, Psi Chi offers a wide range of local, regional, and national programs to enhance the learning experience of its members. Membership in Psi Chi is open to all undergraduates who meet the eligibility criteria for their local chapter.

Am I Eligible?
The criteria for the Tufts chapter are:

  1. You must have a declared major in Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Biopsychology, Engineering Psychology, or Cognitive and Brain Sciences.
  2. You must be at least a second-semester sophomore
  3. You need to have completed at least 3 courses in psychology at Tufts and have a Psychology GPA of at least 3.50.
  4. You must have an overall GPA that is in the top 35% of your class. This is currently approximately 3.60, but varies from semester to semester and tends to be a little higher in seniors.
