Pi Sigma Alpha

Pi Sigma Alpha, the national honor society of political science, was founded in 1920 to bring together students and faculty interested in the study of government and politics. The Greek letters of the organization signify a three-fold emphasis on the ideals of scholarship, leadership and service in public affairs. Membership in the organization comes with the expectation of scholarship and intelligent interest in political science as well as participation in curricular and extracurricular activities promoting the advancement of the discipline.
