Organizations

Psi Chi

Psi Chi is the National Honor Society in Psychology, founded in 1929 for the purpose 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 (ACHS) and is an affiliate of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the American Psychological Society (APS).
Psi Chi functions as a federation of chapters located at more than 950 senior colleges and universities.  A National Council, composed of psychologists who are Psi Chi members and who are elected by the chapters, guides the affairs of the organization and sets policy with the approval of the chapters.

Psychology Club

First of all, it is a place to find other students with similar interests whether you are a new student at Tarleton or a returned student.  Though not a requirement for participation, most of our members will be psychology majors and probably in the same courses as you.  Plan on going on to graduate school?  Or just want to know more about it, like how to get there?  Well then, this will be a great place to find those answers.

As a member of the psychology club you will have the opportunity to meet with your professors on a more personal level, something that is difficult to do in the classroom.

In keeping with the social nature of our club, we hold many club and university gatherings.  Some of these gatherings will serve as fundraisers, and some will just be chances to get to know each other better.

Though we have fun, because we wouldn't do it otherwise, psychology club is not just about the social events.  Another goal of the club is to increase your knowledge of psychology as a science with widespread applications.  To this end, we hope to recruit multiple speakers throughout the year, each representing the varied areas of interest within psychology.  The good news is, you choose the speakers.

Finally, it is always a goal of Psychology club to encourage its members to engage in research.  What better way to do this than to attend conferences and see how people all over the world are conducting research into this ever changing area of science!
