Phi Zeta Chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Departmtne inducts new members one time per year. For additional information about the honor society or the application process, please contact co-moderators:
Pi Sigma Alpha was founded in 1920 at the University of Texas for the purpose of bringing together students and faculty interested in the study of government and politics. Professor C. Perry Patterson was an early leader of the first chapter and served as national president of PSA from 1920 until 1932. The success of the honor society at the University of Texas prompted other institutions to apply for chapters, with the Universities of Oklahoma and Kansas establishing chapters by 1922. In March of that year the society held its first national convention at the University of Oklahoma.
Growth in the honor society was gradual throughout the 'twenties and 'thirties and accelerated after the Second World War; today there are over 460 chapters throughout the country. There is at least one college or university with a PSA chapter in every state and the District of Columbia and, as of 1995, the U. S. territory of Guam.
In order to become a member of Pi Sigma Alpha, the Pi Zeta Chapter at Iona College, applicants must meet the following criteria:
(a) be a Junior or Senior
(b) maintain a B average (3.0) in Political Science courses
(c) have completed at least 4 Political Science courses (3 of which must be 300 level or higher)
