The Four Hallmarks of Phi Theta Kappa - ΦΘΚ

Phi Theta Kappa is dedicated to four hallmarks. Each Chapter is challenged to achieve excellence in each of the following areas:

  • Scholarship
  • Leadership
  • Service
  • Fellowship


In order to provide avenues for the implementation of these hallmarks, Phi Theta Kappa promotes an Honors Study Topic and an International Service Program.
