Romance Studies maintains three chapters of National Honor Societies for its students:

Pi Delta Phi
(ΠΔΦ)

The National French Honor Society. Members of Pi Delta Phi must have completed three French courses numbered 260 or above with grades averaging “B” or better at UNC-CH or in one of the UNC-at-Montpellier Programs.

French courses taken at another university do not count towards this requirement. If you have participated in another study abroad program and completed advanced-level courses for which you did not receive graded credit, you may count one of these courses towards the 3-course requirement.

There is a one-time initiation fee of $30. Invitations will be issued and formal induction will take place toward the end of each semester.

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Dorothea Heitsch.

Sigma Delta Pi
(ΣΔΠ)

The Italian Honor Society. Students are nominated for membership in Gamma Kappa Alpha by the instructors of undergraduates.
The National Hispanic Collegiate Honor Society. The installation of the Zeta Psi chapter of Sigma Delta Pi took place May 1, 1968. It was followed by the initiation of two Socios Honorarios–Sturgis E. Leavitt and Sterling Stoudemire–and fifteen Socios Fundadores. Since that date and under the directorship of its founder, María A. Salgado, the chapter at Chapel Hill has continued to hold yearly meetings and initiations. At the present time, the chapter has initiated over 400 members, including Spanish playwright Antonio Buero Vallejo and fiction writer Francisco García Pavón. Among the benefits of belonging to the Honor Society are scholarship and travel awards given for merit.
Members must have completed 3 semesters of work, must have taken a Spanish literature or civilization course above Spanish 260, and have an overall average of 2.75 and 3.0 in Spanish.

Faculty Advisors: Dr. Martha Alexander, Dr. Cristina Carrasco, and Dr. Tamara Cabrera.

Gamma Kappa Alpha
(ΓΚΑ)

This organization recognizes outstanding scholastic performance “outstanding scholastics performance in the fields of Italian language and literature,” and encourages students “to acquire a greater interest in, and a deeper understanding of, Italian culture.” Students are asked to contribute a one-time induction fee of $15. Inductees receive a certificate of membership.

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Amy Chambless
