Designed for students who want to get the most of their college education, the IPFW Honors Program is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program open to students of any major. Participation is voluntary, and students can begin the program at any point in their college career. Completion of the program requirements merits the reception of a certificate and a medal engraved with the student’s name, the only medal that is currently bestowed at the graduation ceremony.
The program is designed for motivated students who want to make the most of their higher education through an enriched academic experience. Come visit us in our new location on the second floor of Helmke Library (LB 201)!
We look forward to your success!

In this installment of The Don Difference, Associate Professor of English Damian Fleming discusses his research on the literature and culture of Anglo-Saxon England, dating from approximately 700 to 1100 A.D. Fleming wants to better understand how medieval scholars interpreted the translations of these texts from the original Hebrew—especially in light of the fact that Anglo-Saxon England was not home to a Jewish population, and very few could actually read Hebrew.Watch the video
