Phi Beta Kappa
Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest liberal arts honor society, founded in 1776, granted a charter that established Chi Chapter of New York at Lehman College in 1970. Membership in Phi Beta Kappa is an honor conferred by invitation in recognition of scholarly achievement in the liberal arts and sciences. Election to the Chapter is based on high scholarship in a broad liberal arts curriculum as distinct from a vocationally oriented course of study. To be eligible for election, a student must have completed a year of college-level study in mathematics or a natural science or a semester of each, have completed two years of foreign language at the college level or its equivalent, and have a minimum 3.6 GPA with 90 credits in liberal arts courses.
