Honor Societies for Modern Language Students
The Department of Modern Languages sponsors two honor societies:
- Phi Sigma Iota, the National Foreign Language Honor Society
- Delta Phi Alpha, the National German Honor Society.
All students who meet the requirements are encouraged to apply for membership. E-mail is used to contact all students with a minor or major in Modern Languages about this possibility.
The minimum requirements for Phi Sigma Iota are: junior status, declared major or minor, 3.0 grade average in language courses. A one-time fee covers a certificate and materials. Honor cords for Commencement may also be purchased.
The minimum requirements for Delta Phi Alpha are: be enrolled in last semester of study, declared major or minor, 3.5 grade average in German courses, with no grade below a "B". A one-time fee covers a certificate and materials. Honor cords for Commencement may also be purchased.
Initiation for both honor societies is each Spring Semester at the Annual Awards Ceremony.
