Honor Society


Phi Alpha Theta is composed of chapters in properly accredited colleges and universities. All students in these institutions who have completed the required number of history courses and are maintaining high standards in their college or university studies are eligible for membership (see below). Phi Alpha Theta is a professional society whose purpose 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 both intellectually and socially; and it encourages and assists historical research and publication by its members in a variety of ways.


The Epsilon Omega Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at LIU Brooklyn is open to both undergraduate and graduate students who meet the following criteria:

  • Completion of at least two semesters at LIU
  • LIU grade point average of at least 3.0
  • Completion of 12 semester credits of history (6 of which must be from LIU)
  • History grade point average of at least 3.1 at LIU

Those who are already members of Phi Alpha Theta are warmly welcomed to participate in Epsilon Omega Chapter activities. Membership in Phi Alpha Theta is for life, so you need not join a second time. Applications for membership are solicited near the beginning of fall and spring semesters. Announcements will also be made in various history classes by the instructors.
