Lambda Alpha - National Honor Society

Lambda Alpha is the national honor society in Anthropology.  The Department of Anthropology at Montclair State University inducts students once per year to our local chapter, NJ Beta, based on the following criteria:

  • Cumulative GPA:  3.0
  • Anthropology GPA:  3.25
  • Plus a declared major or minor in Anthropology with a minimum of 15 credits in Anthropology at Montclair State University

Membership is prestigious. In addition, there is an annually awarded national scholarship of $5000 to a graduating senior major in anthropology. Lifetime membership into the honor society costs $25. There are also honor society pins ($10) and satin stoles ($25) that can be purchased separately and worn at graduation. Interested students should contact the Department of Anthropology.
