Psi Chi


Psi Chi, the international honor society for psychology majors and minors, has an active chapter at the University of Missouri–St. Louis. Membership allows students opportunities to obtain unique experiences and skills to prepare for the transition to graduate school and/or the professional world of psychology and related disciplines. Among other activities, UMSL's Psi Chi chapter hosts an annual speaker series, promotes student research, sponsors graduate school information sessions, plans social events, and lets its members know about available research opportunities and undergraduate teaching assistant positions.
