The Duke Psychology Majors Union is open to all students with an interest in psychology. This organization seeks to encourage interaction between students and faculty in an atmosphere that is informal, social, and fun. We invite distinguished researchers in psychology to speak at Duke each semester, sponsor graduate school information sessions as well as other department events, and offer transportation to local psychology conferences.
Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology. Membership in Psi Chi recognizes your academic achievement and interest in psychology and is an honor recognized by prospective graduate programs and employers. Founded in 1929, Psi Chi is one of the largest honor societies in the United States with over 990 chapters. Duke has been a chartered member for over 40 years. The purposes of Psi Chi are to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship of members in all fields, particularly in psychology, and to advance the science of psychology. To achieve these goals, Psi Chi offers a wide range of local, regional, and national programs (http://www.psichi.org) including awards to fund research, conventions where undergraduates can present research, and the opportunity to publish research in its journal, Psi Chi Journal of Undergraduate Research.
Who is eligible for Psi Chi membership?
Note: the grade levels of 3.5 must be without upward rounding. Also: the grade levels established by the Psi Chi national office are minimum levels. Duke (and other institutions) may set these levels somewhat higher.
To apply for membership
You will be notified about the status of your application shortly after submission (normally within a few days). If you have any questions, please contact the Psi Chi Faculty Advisor (email@example.com), rather than the Undergraduate Studies Office.
We hold an Induction Ceremony for new members at the end of each semester. Current members -- you are encouraged to attend the Induction Ceremony to help welcome new members. Please watch for future announcements concerning the date for this semester.
