PHI THETA KAPPA - Beta Beta Tau Chapter


Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society has more than 2 million members and 1,200 chapters located in all 50 states, U.S. territories, British Virgin Islands, Canada, Germany, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, United Arab Emirates and Palau. It is the premiere honor society of the two-year college and inducts approximately 100,000 students annually with estimates of 200,000 students participating in Phi Theta Kappa programs each year.

Membership requirements in Phi Theta Kappa include: current enrollment at Atlanta Metropolitan State College (AMSC); exemption or exit from Learning Support classes; completion of at least 12 semester hours at AMSC; and a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.5. In addition, students must maintain a 3.0 GPA to continue membership.

The first induction of AMSC's Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society Chapter, Beta Beta Tau, took place in 1995 and the chapter has seen tremendous growth. In fact, in 2010 the chapter received five membership scholarships from PTK Headquarters for increasing membership.

Phi Theta Kappa is more than an honor society, it is also active in the college, community, state, and nation. For example, the chapter served as the 2008-09 Georgia Regional Presidential Chapter and has been awarded the top honor of Five Star status for three consecutive years.
