Phi Alpha Theta


Phi Alpha Theta is an honor society for students of history and a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. Its mission is to promote the study of history through the encouragement of research, good teaching, publication, and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians. It seeks to bring students, teachers, and writers of history together for intellectual and social exchanges, which promote and assist historical research and publication by our members in a variety of ways.
