Theta Alpha Kappa

 
History

Theta Alpha Kappa was founded in 1976 at Manhattan College in New York City as a
national honor society for professors and students of religious studies and theology.
Its prime purpose is to recognize excellence and to further growth in religious studies
and theology at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Theta Alpa Kappa seeks to
encourage research, good teaching, and publication; to encourage an exchange of
learning and thought among scholars; and to bring together students and teachers
in the discipline in an intellectual and social fellowship.

The Alpha Phi Chapter was founded at Santa Clara University in 1981. Members are
elected in their junior or senior year from among religious studies majors and minors
who have GPAs in the top 35 percentile of their graduating class, as well as hold a grade
point average of 3.5 in religious studies and a cumulative index of 3.0.
