An honor society recognizes and encourages high scholarship and/or leadership achievement in a specific field of study. Each year, deserving students are selected for induction into one of St. Kate’s 24+ honor societies.
In fall 1937, St. Kate’s became the first Catholic college or university in the United States, and the third Minnesota institution, to be awarded a Phi Beta Kappa chapter. As the nation’s oldest and most prestigious undergraduate honors organization, Phi Beta Kappa recognizes achievement in the liberal arts.
St. Kate’s Gamma Chapter members hold public events, initiate new members and support the liberal arts and sciences and students who study them.
If you achieve a semester grade point average of 3.667 or above, you may be eligible for the Dean’s List. The Dean’s List is assembled after the deadline for submission of final term grades, so students with incomplete grades may not be considered for that term. If you have questions about the Dean’s List, contact the Office of Academic Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all the available awards and honors, see the current term’s Academic Catalog.
As a graduate student, you’ll enter the University through the Graduate College for women and men then pursue your field of study through one of St. Kate’s four schools.
