Theta Alpha Kappa came into being through the religious studies faculty at Manhattan College in Riverdale, N.Y., in 1976. It has since spread to include over 8,000 members in 180 chapters across the nation. The Alpha Gamma Omicron chapter of Theta Alpha Kappa was founded in 1996. To date, 148 members have been initiated into the chapter. The current chapter moderator is Dr. Dixon Sutherland.
Undergraduate students enrolled in institutions with a Theta Alpha Kappa chapter must have completed at least four units in Religious Studies courses at Stetson University of which at least one must be at the 300-level or above in courses representing these disciplines, have attained a GPA of at least 3.50 in such courses and a 3.0 in their total program, and have been ranked (if appropriate) in the upper 35 percent of their class.
