Psi Chi is the National 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 men and women who are making the study of psychology one of their major interests, and who meet the minimum qualifications. Psi Chi is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Psychological Society (APS).
The Oklahoma State University Chapter of Psi Chi was created on November 10, 1948. Our chapter is one of over 1000 Chapters in the United States and Canada. The total number of memberships registered at the National Psi Chi Office is now over 500,000 lifetime members. Many of these members have gone on to distinguished careers in psychology.
