» What is Phi Alpha Theta?

Phi Alpha ThetaEach semester, Chapman students who have taken at least four history courses and maintained at least a 3.1 GPA in their history courses, and a 3.0 overall GPA are invited to join the Alpha-Mu-Gamma chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honors society. 

Once initiated, students become lifelong members of Phi Alpha Theta and are eligible to compete for scholarships, essay contests, and to attend regional and national conferences sponsored by Phi Alpha Theta. In addition, Alpha Mu Gamma, the campus chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, regularly organizes history related events for all Chapman students including lectures, film series, visits to area museums and trips to Washington, D.C.
