Honors Program

The Fairbanks School of Public Health (FSPH) Honors Program offers select FSPH undergraduate majors the opportunity to enroll in a challenging academic program that will enhance learning opportunities while at IUPUI. Benefits to joining the FSPH Honors Program:

  • Increased opportunities to interact with FSPH faculty members
  • Greater depth of learning in your major
  • Enriched classroom discussions and learning experiences
  • Membership in the IUPUI Honors College, which includes use of the Honors College facility with dedicated study space, computer lab, group-work rooms, access to the Honors College Advisors, and interaction with other Honors students
  • Honors Notation on diploma and transcript, upon successful completion of the program

The Honors Program helped me get to know more about the Fairbanks School of Public Health and I also met new people throughout IUPUI.
