Honor Society: Theta Alpha Kappa
Founded in 1976 at Manhattan College in Riverdale, N.Y., Theta Alpha Kappa is the national honor society in religious studies and theology. The Alpha Delta Nu Chapter was established at Le Moyne College in 1998. The purpose of the organization is to recognize outstanding achievement in the academic study of religion, namely, the study of the religious dimension of human experience as that is expressed in all forms of human culture. To be eligible for membership, junior or senior students must have completed at least 12 credit hours in religious studies with a G.P.A. of 3.50 in those courses, have earned an overall G.P.A. of at least 3.00, and be ranked in the upper 35 percent of their class at the time of induction. Invitations to membership are extended by the faculty in religious studies to those deemed eligible in the spring term each year.
