Phi Alpha Theta is the international honor society for students of history. Founded at the University of Arkansas in 1921, the organization has since grown to more than 740 chapters in fifty states. Since its inception, the number of initiates has risen above 200,000. Phi Alpha Theta encourages its members to learn and practice the methods of the historian. To that end, student members often choose to participate in regional conferences where they present papers and discuss ideas.

Syracuse University’s Phi Alpha Theta chapter advisor is Professor Andrew Aaron Luedtke. Professor Luedtke can be reached by email at
