Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society

Alpha-Kappa-Gamma is Nazareth College's chapter of Phi Alpha Theta. This national professional society's 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.

Nazareth's chapter participates in the annual West/Central New York State regional meeting of Phi Alpha Theta, a conference that enables undergraduates to present original research for competitive awards.

Student Spotlight

Nazareth College student Gwen Dougherty earned a "Best of the Conference" award at the annual West/Central NYS Regional Phi Alpha Theta Conference held at Ithaca College in April 2016. Her paper was on wound care in the Roman army in the first and second century AD and combined her training in biochemistry and history (she is a physical therapy major, with a history minor).
