Phi Theta Delta is Eastern Connecticut State University’s Honor Society for undergraduates in Health Sciences.  

As a Health Science Honor Society, we are dedicated toward improving health standards for those around us through knowledge, service and education.  

The Health Science Honor Society provides service, outreach, and professional development for the members, including networking opportunities and workshops to promote careers in the health-related fields.

Potential members must meet the following criteria: 

  • Health Science Major
  • Junior or Senior status
  • Minimum of 16 credits completed for HSC major/concentration
  • 3 Overall GPA and 3.5 Major GPA

Application Process 
Students who meet the above criteria will be invited to apply in the beginning of each Spring semester. The application will include information about work experience, volunteer experience, extracurricular activities, community engagement and a short essay (250 words or less) about how you plan to impact the field of health. 

The selection committee will consist of at least 3 Health Science faculty members.  The committee will make its selections based on academic performance as well as work, volunteer, extracurricular and community-based experiences.
