French National Honor Society

The Department of German and Romance Languages and Literatures at Johns Hopkins sponsors the Xi Tau chapter of Pi Delta Phi, the French National Honor Society.

To join, undergraduates need not major or minor in French but must have taken at least one upper-level (beyond intermediate) French course at Johns Hopkins; graduate students must be pursuing degrees in French.

To qualify as a regular member, you must:

  • Have a 3.0 GPA minimum in French classes
  • Have a 2.8 minimum GPA overall
  • Rank in the top 35% of your graduating class

Honorary membership is available for those who do not meet all three requirements; it is also available for alumni and faculty at large.

If you have any questions that are not addressed on the Pi Delta Phi website, please contact chapter adviser Professor Derek Schilling or the director of the French language program, Dr. Kristin Cook-Gailloud.
