Sigma Tau Delta


The 2020 Conference is in Las Vegas!
Sigma Tau Delta (ΣΤΔ) is the premier international English honors society.  The organization celebrates student achievement in academics and literary outreach through educational social events and community
engagement in all areas of English studies, including:

  • literature,
  • creative writing
  • technical writing
  • children's literature
  • English education
  • digital humanities, and
  • linguistics. 

The UNC Charlotte chapter of Sigma Tau Delta is Beta Sigma.  Our requirements for membership are that students be an English major or minor with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.  Any student who wishes to become a member should submit a membership enrollment form (WORD Document will download) to the English Department’s front desk and include the required dues.  

This year, a group from Sigma Tau Delta will be going to St. Louis for the Annual Conference!  Next year (2020), the conference will be in Las Vegas!
