The Department of Languages and Communications has chapters in the four national honor societies.
Lambda Pi Eta for Communications
The official honor society of the National Communication Association (NCA), LPH, founded in 1985, takes its name from Aristotle's classical rhetorical formula for persuasion: logos (lambda), pathos (pi), and ethos (eta). According to the society's web page, goals include the following:
Recognize, foster and reward outstanding scholastic achievement in communication studies
Stimulate interest in the field of communication
Promote and encourage professional development among communication majors
Provide an opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas in the field of communication
Establish and maintain closer relationships between faculty and students
Explore options for graduate education in communication studies
According to its homepage at Los Angeles City College, where the society was formed in 1931, "Alpha Mu Gamma has as its primary purpose the honoring of students for outstanding achievement during their first year of foreign language study in college. However, students may be admitted at any stage in their college career." The name comes from the Greek phrase "Amphi Mouse Glosson," which means "for the Muse of Languages."
