German National Honor Society


(Redirected from ΔΦΑ)

The German National Honor Society or Delta Phi Alpha (ΔΦΑ) (German: Deutsche Ehrenverbindung), is the sole post-secondary national honorary society for German studies in the United States. According to the organization, the honor society seeks to "recognize excellence in the study of German and to provide an incentive for higher scholarship. The society aims to promote the study of the German language, literature, and civilization, and endeavors to emphasize those aspects of German life and culture which are of universal value and which contribute to humankind's eternal search for peace and truth." Delta Phi Alpha was founded in 1929 at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where the Alpha chapter still resides. The honor society is currently operated from the campus of Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, PA. The society has over three hundred constituent chapters at colleges and universities throughout the United States.

The high school equivalent is American Association of Teachers of German's (AATG) honor society, Delta Epsilon Phi. It was founded in Coral Gables, Florida, United States, in 1968, functioning as a branch of the AATG.
