Penn State Behrend forms history honor society

January 29, 2013

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, will induct the first members of its History Honors Society in April. The chapter, a part of Phi Alpha Theta, will promote research and publishing efforts by students who have completed 12 credit hours of history.

Seventeen students are currently eligible, said Amy Carney, assistant professor of history and the chapter’s adviser. She plans to schedule guest speakers and career-development seminars for the group.

“We’d like our students to learn more about what it means to be a historian,” she said.

The first chapter of Phi Alpha Theta was formed in Arkansas in 1921. The society now has more than 350,000 members.
