Phi Alpha Theta is the international history honor society, which recognizes achievement in the study of history. Students are inducted at an annual ceremony after they have completed and maintained a grade point average of 3.0 or above in four history courses and a grade point average of 3.0 or above in their other courses. The society encourages the pursuit of historical truth and promotes interest in historical activities. The group’s activities have included trips to New York City and Philadelphia. Members have also presented papers at Phi Alpha Theta regional and national conventions.
