Exceptional English majors and concentrators may be recognized by the department by being offered membership in Sigma Tau Delta, the international English honor society. Additionally, they might be further recognized by being offered the opportunity to complete an English Honors thesis. Further information about these opportunities can be found on the English Honors Thesis page.

Membership in Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honors Society, is an outward recognition of personal accomplishment. It provides opportunities for those interested in English language and literature to join with like-minded persons on the local, regional, national, and international levels.

  • Declared major in English or Liberal Studies with a concentration in English or New Media Studies with a concentration in English.
  • Minimum of 4 courses in English at 200-level or above completed at ECSU
  • Minimum 3.5 average in English courses
  • Minimum 3.0 overall GPA

Each semester, department faculty will consider a list of students meeting the above requirements and invite those whose intellectual ability, course work and character are deemed worthy of this special distinction to join the society.
