Students have the opportunities to join the History Club, become a member of Phi Alpha Theta, the History Honor Society, and participate in student-faculty research.
Phi Alpha Theta
The Phi Alpha Theta, Omega Phi Chapter at the College of Charleston, is a professional society whose mission is to promote the study of history through the encouragement of research, good teaching, publication and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians. We seek to bring students, teachers and writers of history together for intellectual and social exchanges, which promote and assist historical research and publication by our members in a variety of ways. Interested in becoming a member? Just complete the application for membership in Phi Alpha Theta.
This club is open to all students with an interest in History. The History Club is a college campus organization devoted to providing a forum for historical exploration and discourse to any student with an interest in the field of history. As a club, we seek to provide students a social setting to meet fellow history scholars through a series of trips to historical sites, lectures, movie showings, and social gatherings.
The History Department offers the Outstanding Student Award each year to a graduating senior with a GPA of 3.5 (cum laude) and SERVICE to the History Club or Phil Alpha Theta.
