Student Clubs and Organizations
There are many clubs and organizations relevant to those interested in Political Science. Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honor society, established the Chi Theta chapter at St. Thomas in 1999. The purpose of Pi Sigma Alpha is to acknowledge superior performance in the study of political science, to forge closer links between faculty and political science majors and minors, and to stimulate political interest in the St. Thomas community.
The Foreign Affairs Club is a club for debate and public speaking on foreign policy and international issues. Club members participate in Model UN conferences across the US, participate in trips and events locally and nationally, and generally have an opportunity to get connected with world issues and look at the bigger picture.
Pre-Law Society (PLS) is a University of St. Thomas student organization founded in 1983. Membership is open to all St. Thomas undergraduate students. Members should have an interest in legal education and career after graduating from St. Thomas.
Other university clubs and organizations of interest to Political Science majors and minors include the Political Science Club, College Democrats, College Republicans, the Globally-Minded Student Association, the African Nations Student Association, and the Green Team, just to name a few.
