Established in 1976 at Manhattan College in The Bronx, NY, Theta Alpha Kappa seeks to recognize academic achievements of religious studies and theology students. According to their website, the honor society “...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.
Eligible students must be nominated by a local chapter for admittance and hold a minimum of a 3.5 GPA in religious studies or a 3.0 GPA overall based on the traditional 4.0 scale. Class ranking also comes into play and students must live on campus in order to be considered. Once inducted, students gain access to scholarship awards and academic competitions along with networking opportunities.
Currently, Theta Alpha Kappa has grown to over 200 chapters nationwide with over 270,000 members. You’ll notice graduates wearing single red honor cords on graduation day.
As a reminder, our team continues to operate with a modified business solution, complete with remote and isolated order processing locations. Our goal is to safely deliver honor and recognition gear to schools and institutions to have ready for their students once graduation dates have been reworked. We understand the importance of graduation regalia and what it means to students and faculty and want graduates to mark their accomplishments in a way in which they deserve. No matter what your commencement ceremony looks like this year, our honor and recognition gear means the same and looks just as great!
