The IUPUI Honors College provides students with excellent educational experiences and opportunities that supplement, integrate, enrich, and provide depth to students' regular degree programs.
Through small courses designed specifically for honors students, independent research opportunities, recognition of experiential learning, and dedicated academic advising, the college seeks to assist students in developing an individualized Honors Academic Plan that will serve them well in their future educational and professional endeavors.
The IUPUI Honors College experience offers:
- a common honors academic core through honors-designated course work in the arts and humanities as well as the social and physical sciences,
- uniquely designed educational experiences through independent research, and development of an individualized program of study,
- preparation for post-baccalaureate study as well as professional placement through rigorous coursework, research, and internship possibilities, and
- the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the world at large through service learning course work, civic engagement opportunities, culture studies, and study abroad experiences.
Honors Scholars may choose to participate in the IUPUI Honors College by taking occasional courses, coordinated participation through a departmental Honors Program, or they may opt to graduate with Honors by completing an Honors Academic Plan. When successfully completed, a notation signifying that the student has performed in an outstanding manner across a broad spectrum of study in diverse fields in the arts and sciences is listed on the IUPUI transcript.
