Psi Chi was founded in 1929 to recognize scholastic achievement, and to encourage leadership, research and creativity. It was the first student organization affiliated with the American Psychological Association. The RSU chapter is the first baccalaureate Honor Society established at the university.
RSU’s Bachelor of Science in Social Science is a multi-disciplinary degree that stresses competence in written and oral communications as well as scientific reasoning and thinking skills. Students can focus their studies in environmental studies, psychology or sociology. Upon graduation, students are prepared for careers in general management, counseling, human services, health care, recreation, and law enforcement, as well as professional or graduate studies.
