Phi Theta Kappa Honors Program

The Honors Program fulfills multiple dimensions of Phi Theta Kappa's mission. It is designed to:

  • foster a stimulating environment for intellectual growth and challenge
  • create opportunities for leadership and learning as leaders through service and advocacy

For the first purpose of our mission — fostering a stimulating intellectual environment — the Honors Program foundation and focus is the Honors Study Topic. The biennial topic is an interdisciplinary, contemporary topic of interest related to global challenges. Members explore the topic with the multitude of perspectives that their personal experiences and academic studies provide.

For the second purpose of our mission — creating opportunities for leadership and action — the Honors Program provides guidance through a process called Honors in Action for taking action based upon new knowledge related to the themes of the Honors Study Topic.
