Psychology Club & Psi Chi
Psi Chi 15th Anniversary - Spring, 2007
The Psychology Club provides a forum where psychology students can meet outside of class time, in order to develop a better understanding of the science of psychology. Generally, the club meets every other week during the fall and spring semesters.
Meetings are usually informal and presentations are often made by off-campus speakers.
In the past, topics have included presentations on crisis intervention, the clinical practice of psychology, organizational/industrial psychology, and the 'nuts and bolts' of getting into graduate school. Psychology majors and minors are encouraged to attend. We need your enthusiasm and leadership.
Psi Chi is the national honor society in psychology. In contrast to the Psychology Club whose membership is open to anyone, Psi Chi membership is restricted to those who meet the academic criteria for acceptance.
To be eligible for Psi Chi, a student must be in the upper third of their class at Belmont. They must have declared a major or minor in psychology. Additionally they must have sucessfully completed nine hours of psychology classes with a grade point average of 3.0 or better. Transfer students must have completed at least six hours of psychology in residence at Belmont with the same grade point requirements.
Importantly, the Psychology Club and Psi Chi co-sponsor events so that no one is excluded. Occasionally, Psi Chi members must meet by themselves in order to conduct official business.
Dr. Linda D. Jones is the faculty sponsor for both Psi Chi and the Psychology Club.
