Welcome to the Thomas University
The Psychology Club at Thomas University is a student run organization that is open to all students with an interest in psychology. The purpose of the psychology club is to provide information, opportunities and resources to our members that will enrich their student experience at Thomas University.
- Engage in a variety of activities, including sponsoring speakers on a variety of topics related to psychology
- Provide workshops on applying to graduate school
- Students also participate in multiple service and social activities each year designed to enhance leadership skills. These activities include:
- fund-raising events
- community service projects
- psychology club socials
We start each semester with a pizza party to share with each other our time away from the university and typically meet three times each semester to discuss and organize future events.
History and Overview
Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology, established in 1929 for the goals of promoting and supporting excellence in scholarship, and enhancing the science of psychology. Currently Psi Chi has more chapters than any other honor society in baccalaureate institutions. It also has the largest membership of any psychological society in the world.
- A student must have completed nine semester hours of psychology to be admitted into Psi Chi
- Must have declared a psychology major or minor
- Must have a 3.2 GPA overall and a 3.5 GPA in psychology
Because Psi Chi provides students with national identification for their scholastic merit in psychology, this distinction can be included on employment applications and resumes.
