Pi Gamma Mu

Pi Gamma Mu is the oldest, the largest, and the most significant of the honor societies broadly concerned with the social sciences. Since its inception in 1924 it has initiated over 200,000 members. There are currently 170 active chapters located in universities and colleges throughout the United States and in the Philippines.

The mission of Pi Gamma Mu is to encourage and promote excellence in the social sciences and to uphold the ideals of scholarship and service.

Juniors, seniors and graduate students become eligible to join Pi Gamma Mu when they meet the following criteria for membership: upper 35% of the class, a grade average of "B" or better, and 20 semester hours in social science courses. The Society not only provides recognition for scholastic achievements, but also offers enrichment through service projects, publications, scholarships and lectureship grants.
