Pi Sigma Alpha is the National Honor Society for Political Science majors. To be eligible, a student must have a G.P.A. that places him/her in the top third of his/her class; have junior standing; have completed 10 credit hours in political science coursework; and have paid national and university dues.

Our organizations has been very involved on campus as we have hosted four Ambassadors to the United States (from the Republic of Georgia, Ivory Coast, Liberia, and Mali) and panel discussions–including the spring 2016 Media & Politics panel (featuring CSPAN Founder and CEO Brian Lamb).
