Alpha Kappa Delta - Honor Society of Sociology

The purpose of Alpha Kappa Delta is to seek to acknowledge and promote excellence in the scholarship in the study of sociology, the research of social problems, and such other social and intellectual activities as will lead to improvement in the human condition.

Membership is open to undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty members from active chapters who meet our minimum standards. Currently, there are more than 130,000 members in Alpha Kappa Delta and over 670 chapters.

For more information visit the official AKD webpage or contact faculty advisor, Professor Tina Villareal for details about the Texas State chapter of AKD. Invitations to join AKD are typically sent to students via email in October for the fall semester and February for the spring semester.
