Phi Alpha Theta


The Pi Alpha Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the National History Honor Society, focuses on the intellectual and career development of students in the field of History. Founded in 1969, our organization currently has over thirty members, all of whom have excelled, academically, in the field of history. Through our organization, we offer enlightening history related documentary and game nights, secure guest speakers in the fields of history, and offer career outreach to fellow history majors. Phi Alpha Theta at Georgia Southern University provides a unique and open environment to discuss and enjoy history.
