Theta Alpha Kappa (TAK) is the national Religious Studies honor society to which the Wake Forest University Chapter, Alpha Gamma Kappa, belongs. To be eligible for induction into TAK, students must have completed a minimum 12 hours of courses in Religion, have a 3.5 GPA in Religion, and a 3.0 GPA overall. Students must have declared Religion as a Major.
In 1976, Professor Albert Clark, F.S.C., established Theta Alpha Kappa at Manhattan College in Riverdale (the Bronx), New York for the purpose of recognizing the academic achievements of religion and theology students. Since then, Theta Alpha Kappa has grown to more than two hundred chapters nationally 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.
In addition to encouraging the activities of local chapters, Theta Alpha Kappa maintains a vigorous national program of scholarship awards and fellowship competitions; its primary publication, the Journal of Theta Alpha Kappa, offers an annual prize and the publication of outstanding student papers.
Theta Alpha Kappa is an affiliated society of the American Academy of Religion, a member of the Association of College Honor Societies, and a member of the Council of Societies for the Study of Religion.
