Phi Alpha Theta 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. As a member of PAT, you will be eligible to compete for scholarships and paper prizes, as well as participate in the national convention. Membership in Phi Alpha Theta is a nice addition to your resume, particularly if you are planning a career in history or education.
