About the Alpha Kappa Delta Honor Society (AKD)
Alpha Kappa Delta is the International Sociology Honor Society, dedicated to the scientific study of social phenomena for the promotion of human welfare. Members receive the journal Sociological Inquiry and are invited to attend national symposia and participate in undergraduate research paper competitions. The University of Oregon chapter is the Alpha Chapter in the State of Oregon, founded in 1926. Students who are declared sociology majors, have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3, and have a major GPA of 3.0+ in 16 credits or more of sociology coursework may apply to become members of AKD.
Each spring, the Sociology Department invites majors who meet the eligibility criteria to submit applications to become lifetime members. Near the end of the academic year, the department inducts new members into the honor society at a formal ceremony.
