This spring, eight students with majors or minors in Carnegie Mellon University’s Department of History were inducted in Phi Alpha Theta (PAT). The national honor society was established in 1921 to promote quality research and learning experiences and unite undergraduate and graduate students with faculty. About 9,500 members join the society each year through 860 local chapters.

“Membership is composed of students and faculty who have been elected on the basis of excellence in the study and writing of history,” said PAT faculty adviser Naum Kats. “We are proud that among the class of 2016 there are 15 members of this honor society.”
