Pi Sigma Alpha Honor Society

Honor Society for Political Science

Pi Sigma Alpha Honor Society logo.

Pi Sigma Alpha seeks to promote excellence in the study of political science through a variety of programs for student members and local chapters. As Pi Sigma Alpha continues to grow and prosper, the scope of programs for chapters and members may be expanded in the future to include bigger awards and/or more awards in each category.

Pi Sigma Alpha Honors Society aims to reward highly motivated and successful students of Political Science. Members not only received academic recognition, but become eligible for internships, grants, and conference submissions through Pi Sigma Alpha. They reward students for outstanding thesis and paper submissions, as well as reward outstanding chapters with a cash award. The College of New Jersey’s Pi Sigma Alpha faculty adviser is Dr. Hyun-Binn Cho, who can be reached at

Undergraduate students are encouraged to join to enhance chapters of Pi Sigma Alpha. The undergraduate membership requirements are as follows: 

  • Must have completed at least half of the total credits required by their institution for the baccalaureate degree
  • Must have completed at least two and a half units in political science, including at least one upper-division course, with an average grade of B or higher in those courses
  • Must have achieved an overall GPA placing them in the top one-third of their whole class
  • Your primary major is not required to be Political Science in order to qualify.
