Honors & Continuing Study
Theta Alpha Kappa
Emmanuel has a chapter of Theta Alpha Kappa, the national honor society for Theology and Religious Studies, which was founded in 1977 to encourage scholarly excellence in the field. There is a yearly induction that takes place each spring.
The criteria for the TAK award nominations are as follows:
- 15 credit hours in religious studies
- GPA of 3.5 in those credits
- cumulative GPA of 3.0
- standing in the top 35% of the class
Members of Theta Alpha Kappa are eligible to apply for a Graduate Fellowship Award to be used towards graduate study in theology or religious studies. Members may also submit papers for the Albert Clark Award for the best undergraduate paper in Religious Studies or Theology, and may have their papers published in the Journal of Theta Alpha Kappa. Chelsea Pingree '09, a member of Theta Alpha Kappa, recently had her senior distinction paper published in the Journal.
