Undergraduate Honors Program

Add to your list of achievements

Join the PETM Honors Program

All PETM majors have the opportunity to engage more deeply in the classroom, in the lab, and in downtown Indy.

As an undergraduate honors student, you'll have increased access to PETM faculty and its facilities, as well as membership to the IUPUI Honors College and access to its computer lab, study space, advisors, study abroad programs, and student council.

You'll also receive partial sponsorship to join professional organizations or to travel to professional activities, such as conferences and seminars.

If you're interested in joining the next class of undergraduate honors students, speak with your PETM advisor, or email Laura Masterson or Jake Streepey.
