Philosophy: Phi Sigma Tau

Phi Sigma Tau is an international philosophy honor society for undergraduate students. Founded in 1930, it fosters academic excellence as well as philosophical interest. In addition to providing a means of awarding distinction to students with scholarly achievement, the Society also promotes interest in philosophy among the general collegiate community. The National Society publishes an official journal twice yearly. The Missouri Beta chapter here at Rockhurst hosts an annual dinner honoring initiates and sponsors regular campus-wide discussions on timely philosophical subjects. The Chapter selects those students who show advanced philosophical abilities and who demonstrate the significance of philosophy in Jesuit education and its overall primacy in liberal education.
