Student Organizations & Activities
Phi Alpha Theta
Outstanding students may become members of the department's chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the national History honorary society.
Students in History may also participate in the Undergraduate History Club, which organizes excursions to sites of historical interest and promotes collegial relations between students and faculty. Students represent their interests on several Departmental committees. The department keeps in contact with students through a semester newsletter, available in the department's offices.
Historians at Work
An annual workshop series, entitled "Historians at Work," explores the career possibilities for students of history. Professionals from a variety of fields and occupations discuss the use of their training in History in their careers. Workshops in library research methods, resumé writing, and graduate and professional school application are offered as well.
