The Program of Catholic Studies is proud to induct Seton Hall students to Delta Epsilon Sigma (Alpha Mu local-Seton Hall chapter) on April 27 at 5:30 p.m. (following 5 p.m. mass) in the Chapel of Immaculate Conception. Delta Epsilon Sigma Honor Society has been present at Seton Hall University since 1941 only three years after the society's foundation in 1939. Delta Epsilon Sigma is a National Scholastic Honor Society for Students of Catholic Colleges and Universities.
To be eligible for membership in the Honor Scholastic Society, candidates must be Junior or Senior Students who have a record of outstanding academic accomplishment, who have shown dedication to intellectual activity, and who have accepted their responsibility of service to others by various service activities, coming from all schools/colleges and disciplines all over the university.

Junior and senior students must have a 3.5 or higher GPA, as well as received one faculty nomination/letter of recommendation in order to be nominated for membership to Seton Hall's Alpha Mu Chapter of Delta Epsilon Sigma. Graduate students shall have completed one-half of the credit requirements for their degree and shall have a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale or its equivalent.

About Catholic Studies
Catholic Studies builds upon and develops the themes and questions addressed in the University Core Curriculum and is complementary to other disciplines. A bachelor's degree in Catholic Studies is an interdisciplinary, liberal arts degree — a major that enhances every other major. Since its focus is the Church's encounter and dialogue with society or the Church in the world, Vatican II designated a special place for Catholic Studies as a discipline in academic life. As a result, Catholic Studies is a dialogue between Catholicism and culture that occurs in a special way at Catholic universities. While respecting other disciplines, Catholic Studies explores theology and philosophy in relation to culture, humankind and the world. This methodological approach opens up a place for all other disciplines; these enrich Catholic Studies and are enriched in return.
