The Phi Alpha Theta Chapter at Indiana University Northwest


If interested in joining Phi Alpha Theta, or for more information, please email Professor Jonathyne Briggs ([[jwbriggs]]).

The Indiana University Northwest Alpha-Nu-Tau chapter of Phi Alpha Theta invites students to join the national history honor society. Our one-time initiation fee of $40.00 per student is payable at the time of initiation. This fee includes a membership certificate and four issues of our journal, The Historian. Membership in Phi Alpha Theta is a lifetime membership. Once the initiation fee is paid, there are no annual dues or fees. Members who wish to continue supporting the honor society may do so by subscribing to The Historian and/or to our newsletter. Members are honored at the annual College of Arts and Sciences Honors Tea and are given a sash to wear at graduation.

To be eligible, undergraduate students must complete a minimum of 12 credit hours (4 courses) in history achieving a minimum GPA of 3.1 in History and a GPA of 3.0 or better overall. Eligible candidates must also be in the top 35% of their class. Students enrolled in an online program are not eligible. Membership is not limited to history majors.
