Honor Societies

Honor societies are an excellent way to reap the rewards of your hard work in the classroom. Through membership in clubs like Sigma Tau Delta for English or Tau Beta Pi for engineering, students can develop leadership skills while promoting the study of their academic discipline.

Widener currently hosts honor societies in a number of fields of study, ranging from history and criminal justice to psychology and chemical engineering. Societies for freshmen and non-traditional adult students are also active.

We have 35 honor societies on our main campus. Come join us.

Widener Honor Societies 

Membership in these societies can help you after you graduate, too! It gives you deeper insight into the various careers associated with your discipline while also giving your résumé or curriculum vitae a boost.
