Pepperdine University | Seaver College

The Humanities and Teacher Education Division sponsors a chapter of Phi Sigma Tau, the international honor society of philosophy.  Phi Sigma Tau recognizes excellence in scholarship and promotes philosophical discussions outside of the classroom through informal events.  The honor society publishes the bi-annual journal, Dialogue, which provides undergraduate students in philosophy the opportunity to be published.  Past Pepperdine students have published book reviews and articles in the journal.

The national office of Phi Sigma Tau is now located at Pepperdine University. For more information, visit the official Phi Sigma Tau website.
