Trinity College and the Pratt School of Engineering officially recognize the following national academic honor societies, each of which has a long and distinguished reputation at Duke and throughout the United States. Because the last several years have seen a proliferation of academic societies in America, undergraduates at Duke should be careful to scrutinize invitations to join national honor societies with which they are unfamiliar. Your academic dean would be happy to discuss the pros and cons of membership in other societies not officially recognized at Duke.
Officially Recognized Academic Honor Societies at Duke:
- Phi Beta Kappa – national undergraduate honor society (for information on selection criteria, please visit http://pundit.pratt.duke.edu/wiki/Phi_Beta_Kappa)
- Tau Beta Pi – engineering honor society
