Theta Alpha Kappa

Lycoming Chapter: Alpha Theta Gamma

"Theta Alpha Kappa exists to encourage, recognize, and maintain excellence in Religious and/or Theological Studies within baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate degree programs, and also within the academic profession of these studies more broadly understood."


Members must have completed at least three semesters at Lycoming College and at least twelve semester credits in courses representing the study of religion; have attained a GPA of at least 3.5 in these courses and a 3.0 GPA in their total program; and been ranked in the upper 35% of their class at the time of induction.

Membership is not limited to Religion majors.
