Phi Alpha Theta

Phi Alpha Theta is a national history honors society whose purpose is to promote the study of history and to bring students, teachers and writers of history together in intellectual and social ways. We strive to make the study of history fun and to bring students interested in history together to form friendships with others interested in history as well as create a professional network. In the past, we have hosted events such as study nights, co-sponsored movies with the WUD Film Committee and behind-the-scenes tours of the Historical Society. As members of a national organization, Phi Alpha Theta inductees also have the opportunity to attend or present at a variety of conferences, have access to several scholarships and the option of wearing maroon and aqua cords at graduation.

If you are interested in becoming a member of Phi Alpha Theta, stop by the History Department Office (3211 Humanities) and fill out a membership application or contact our chapter president. Students can join and participate at any point during the academic year. New members are officially inducted every spring during Phi Alpha Theta’s annual induction banquet.
