Theta Alpha Kappa was founded in 1976 to honor outstanding undergraduate students in the fields of religious studies and/or theology. The Society, which has over 120 active chapters, sponsors the scholarly Journal of Theta Alpha Kappa
. This journal is published regularly and is disseminated to active members. It features work of qualified students as well as professional academics.
The Department of Religious Studies houses the DePaul University Rho Chapter of Theta Alpha Kappa. Each year students from Religious Studies, Islamic World Studies and Catholic Studies are inducted as new members to this national honors society.
