History Club/Phi Alpha Theta

Welcome to the History Club/Phi Alpha Theta in the Utah State University Department of History!

Submit your paper for the National Conference!

Phi Alpha Theta is a national 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 and teachers together for intellectual and social exchanges. At USU, we sponsor social events, conferences, and scholarship opportunities. You don’t have to be a formal member to attend events, but to join the national group, you must meet specific requirements and pay a small fee.

Phi Alpha Theta plans exciting and educational activities every semester, so make sure to join in! Each event features history-themed activities and fun prizes.
