Honor societies and organizations

History and political science students have the opportunity to join several clubs and organizations dedicated to their fields of study and subsequent career choices.

Alpha Zeta Alpha

The Norwich University chapter of Pi Sigma Alpha, the National Political Science Honor Society, seeks to stimulate productive scholarship and intelligent interest in the subject of government, politics, and policy. We also seek:

  • to promote a better understanding of government, politics, and policy¬†among members
  • to promote worthwhile curricular and extracurricular activities related to political science
  • to advance and diffuse knowledge and interest in political science
  • to organize and conduct seminars, conferences, research, discussion groups and publications in the subject of political science

It is a professional goal of our chapter to recognize superior scholastic ability in the field of political science at Norwich and to ensure those possessing these qualifications will be afforded the opportunity to become a proponent of the above principles in Pi Sigma Alpha.

Each spring, our chapter holds a ceremony to recognize new members and we feature a guest speaker to discuss the role and value of leadership in politics, government, and in civil society.


POLITEIA is an organization dedicated to promoting interest in political affairs and political science. This interest includes and is not limited to: current events, current research in politics and political science, an awareness of professional opportunities, and leadership within the Corps of Cadets and civilian lifestyles.

Pre-Law Society

The purpose of the Pre-Law Society is to advance the scholarly study of law and to facilitate the implementation of knowledge to benefit our society. It is the vision of the society to offer assistance to students at Norwich University by helping them make informed decisions in selecting law as a career, the application process, determining a law school and the practice of law in any law-related profession.

Mu Sigma Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta

We are a professional society whose mission is to promote the study of history through the encouragement of research, good teaching, publication and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians. We seek to bring students and teachers together for intellectual and social exchanges, which promote and assist historical research and publication by our members in a variety of ways.

Eligibility for membership is based on two criteria:

  1. A cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.0
  2. A cumulative grade point average of at least 3.1 in a minimum of four history classes

Note that being a history or related major is not a requirement!

Annual induction ceremonies are scheduled in April. Please see Dr. Rowly Brucken (rbrucken@norwich.edu) for further information.
