Alpha Phi Sigma National Criminal Justice Honor Society
Alpha Phi Sigma is the only National Criminal Justice Honor Society for Justics Studies
majors. The society recognizes academic excellence of undergraduate, graduate students
of criminal justice, as well as juris doctorate.
Chi Pi Sigma is a coeducational, professional, criminal justice fraternity exclusively
at San Jose State University. Student members are individuals, of varying majors,
with career goals in the criminal justice system such as: law, law enforcement, probation,
corrections, and so on. For over 75 years, our student members have gone into these
respective fields on a local, state, and federal level, as well as the private sector.
The primary objective of the Fraternity is to assist members with occupational preparedness,
career selection, career acquisition and to provide a fertile environment for academic
study and social networking. Chi Pi Sigma also supports and promotes the Justice Studies
Department, strives to improve the campus environment and makes positive contributions
to the local community through numerous volunteer opportunities and committee involvement.

Our purpose is to provide the forum for forensic science students to exchange information
on course work, scholarships and to promote mentoring, and to make available activities
which reflect the interest of the group. We facilitate contacts within the forensic
science community in order to provide internships, guest speakers and future job opportunities.
