Phi-Alpha Honor Society

"Through knowledge - the challenge to serve"      

The Social Work Department at La Sierra University is proud to sponsor the Iota Theta Chapter of the Phi Alpha Honor Society, a national honor society for outstanding social work students. The honor society states its purpose as to "provide a closer bond among students of social work and promote humanitarian goals and ideals. Phi Alpha fosters high standards of education for social workers and invites into membership, those who have attained excellence in scholarship and achievement in social work." Eligibility for membership is based on meeting the following national requirements:

a. Declared social work as a major
b. Achieved sophomore status
c. Completed 12-quarter hours of required social work courses
d. Achieved an overall grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale)
e. Achieved a 3.25 grade point average in required social work courses.


Social work students who meet the above criteria are invited into membership at an induction ceremony held annually in April. Honor society members are eligible to wear a medallion at graduation to signify this academic achievement
