IPFW undergraduate programs prepare you for life, whether that means you enter the workforce in your chosen field or continue your studies at the graduate level. Many programs offer unique theoretical and practical hands-on learning experiences that draw on community resources. IPFW’s small class sizes give you and your professors the opportunity to discuss issues and class assignments, or perhaps even collaborate on a research project.

University services and support systems are for all students. The recreational facilities at the Gates Sports Center, informational resources of Helmke Library, productions at Williams Theatre, and job-placement assistance through Career Services are just a few of the resources available to you.
