Awards and Honors

The Department of History rewards excellence with four student awards. The awards, which include a certificate and a monetary sum, are announced in the spring and presented at the University awards ceremony. The department of history is also proud of its faculty members who have been published. Here is a list of faculty members along with some information about what they have had published.

Phi Alpha Theta Honors Society Members

Phi Alpha Theta, the International Honor Society in History, was founded in 1921. On May 13, 1965 the Wisconsin State University-Oshkosh (now the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh) received a charter for its local chapter, Kappa-Eta. Since its inception, the Kappa-Eta chapter has had more than 350 members--both students and faculty.

In 1994 the chapter hosted the Wisconsin Regional Conference of Phi Alpha Theta, and the same year it was awarded a Best Chapter Award for category III by the international organization.
