Phi Alpha Theta

The Honors Society (Phi Alpha Theta) and the UCSB History Club are open to anyone interested in history. The group sponsors regular meetings about topics of interest, movie nights with major Hollywood films on historical topics, and occasional field trips. This is a great way to meet other students and become part of the larger community of historians on campus. Both majors and non-majors are welcome.

Phi Alpha Theta has a national chapter with its own membership requirements. Students wishing to join the national group should be a part of the UCSB group and must have completed at least five courses in history with a grade-point average of 3.1 or better. Graduate students and faculty also belong to the organization. This national organization sponsors both regional and national competitions for student papers.

Further information about the campus organization is available from the history dept undergraduate advisor or the faculty advisor, Prof. Lisa Jacobson, or visit the Phi Alpha Theta, Gamma Iota Chapter website.
