Members of the honor society are inducted through the Omicron Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. At initiation, students pay a one-time fee of $45.00. This fee is for a lifetime membership and includes a certificate and four issues of our journal, The Historian. To raise funds for local activities, Omicron Chapter members hold a Book and Bake sale each semester. Members may also continue their support for the honor society by subscribing to The Historian and/or to our newsletter.
Undergraduate students must complete at least 12 semester hours in History (4 courses) with a GPA of at least 3.1 in History, have a GPA of 3.0 or better overall, and be in the top 35% of the class. Membership is not limited to students with a History major.
Graduate students should have completed a minimum of 12 semester hours towards their Master's Degree in History, have a GPA of better than 3.5, and shall have completed approximately 30% of the residence requirements for the Master's Degree.
