Phi Beta Kappa
Phi Beta Kappa is the most prestigious undergraduate honor society in the liberal arts and sciences in the United States.
About Phi Beta Kappa at UC San Diego
The Phi Beta Kappa chapter at UC San Diego was chartered in 1977 and has initiated many thousands of exceptional UCSD students in the past 40+ years. It is part of a national organization that dates back to 1776.
Each spring we nominate and initiate new members and select graduate intiate award recipients. We are currently trying to expand our active membership so that we can offer additional events, such as a speaker series, during the academic year.
