Theta Alpha Kappe logoTheta Alpha Kappa is the national honor society recognizing academic excellence in the fields of theology and religious studies.  

Membership is a fine opportunity for a student’s outstanding work in theology and religious studies to be recognized at graduation and with participation in a national academic society.  

To be eligible, students must be completing a major or minor in theology and religious studies and achieve at least a 3.5 GPA in theology and religious studies courses and at least a 3.0 overall GPA.

Students are honored in their senior year. They are recognized at an April Theology and Religious Studies Honoring Lunch Banquet. They also receive a red cord to be worn at graduation. Students contribute $25 toward the $75 membership fee, which is subsidized by the School of Theology and Religious Studies.
