Honor Society


Pi Sigma Alpha is the National Honor Society in Political Science. Pi Sigma Alpha was founded in 1920 at the University of Texas for the purpose of bringing together students and faculty interested in the study of government and politics. Currently there are almost 700 chapters throughout the country. There is at least one college or university with a Pi Sigma Alpha chapter in every state, the District of Columbia and Guam. The society functions at the national level by sponsoring programs and events of value to the profession and teaching of political science. Local chapters are encouraged to provide a framework for enriching the exposure of its members and the wider university community to the study of government and issues of public concern. Alpha Gamma Epsilon is the local chapter at Wheeling Jesuit University and was founded in 2005.

Membership in Pi Sigma Alpha is open to juniors, seniors, and graduate students currently enrolled in programs of political science in institutions where chapters are located. To become an undergraduate member of PSA you must meet the following criteria: You must be at least a junior who has completed at least ten semester-credits (30 credit hours) of work in political science including at least one upper-division course, with an average grade of B or higher in those courses. You must also have achieved an overall GPA placing you in the top one-third of your whole class (i.e., junior or senior class).

Invitations will be sent to potential candidates during the spring semester.
For more information, please contact chapter advisor Dr. Chris Stadler at cstadler@wju.edu.
