Theta Alpha Kappa
National Honor Society for
Religious Studies and Theology
Founded in 1976 at Manhattan College in Riverdale (the Bronx), New York City to recognize the academic achievements of religion and theology students. Currently, Theta Alpha Kappa has more than two hundred chapters nation-wide in four-year educational institutions ranging from small religiously affiliated colleges to large public research institutions. It is the only national honor society dedicated to recognizing academic excellence in baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate students and in scholars in the fields of religious studies and theology.
Induction requires nomination by a local chapter and, to be eligible, students must have a 3.5 GPA in Religious Studies and/or Theology and a 3.0 GPA overall. Residency, class ranking and unit requirements must also be met. Theta Alpha Kappa is a related scholarly organization of the American Academy of Religion, an affiliated program of the Society of Biblical Literature and is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies.
In the spring of 2006, the then Dept. of Religion and Philosophy, under the leadership of Dr. Adam English, initiated the process of application to create a new chapter here at Campbell. Late in the fall of 2006 the application process was completed, and we were able to form a chapter and induct new members, which we did for the first time in April of 2007. Our local chapter name is Alpha Theta Mu and we induct new members annually in the spring.
