Pi Sigma Alpha


Pi Sigma Alpha is the National Political Science Honor Society. FIU's chapter, Tau Rho, was founded in 1994. It provides dedicated political science graduate students with a forum to have their voices heard within the department and nationally. Pi Sigma Alpha gives members a chance to participate in and plan lectures, debates, and national essay contests.

In addition, Pi Sigma Alpha is an excellent way for students who excel academically to meet with peers, professors, and staff of the Political Science department. We give Political Science honor students a voice at Florida International University.
