Phi Alpha Theta

Students who have done four history courses with a cumulative history GPA of 3.75 or higher are eligible to be inducted into Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honors society, in the April induction ceremony.  If you believe that you may be eligible for this, please contact our chapter's faculty adviser, Dr. Árpád von Klimó.

The Department of History sends students to the annual Mid-Atlantic Phi Alpha Theta conference every spring to present their original research.  Our students have won prizes for their papers, and our chapter has been awarded the "Most Outstanding Chapter" in recent years.  You do not have to be a member of Phi Alpha Theta to participate.  Please contact Dr. Klimó for more information.
