Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society
Phi Alpha Theta (ΦΑΘ) is an American honor society for undergraduate and graduate students and professors of history. The society has over 400,000 members, with some 9,000 new members joining each year through 970 chapters nationwide.
Undergraduate students must complete a minimum of four courses (12 credit hours) in history. Of those four courses, we recommend that two should be 100- or 200-level, and the other two should be 300-level or higher. You may count one course transferred from another institution. A minimum 3.1 GPA in history and 3.0 GPA overall are required. Students from all majors are welcome to apply.
The University of Baltimore chapter reviews applications for new members twice a year, on Oct. 15 and Feb. 15. To apply, please send a short statement (three to five sentences) explaining what history courses have meant to you, as well as a copy of your unofficial transcript, to Professor Nicole Hudgins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants who are accepted will pay a $50 one-time membership fee required by the national organization. If you have difficulties paying this fee, please mention in your application your interest in our limited scholarships for the application fee.
