English as a Second Language

The English as a Second Language (ESL) Program provides English instruction for individuals who need to improve their language skills. Students may take classes 
at our Intensive English Language Program (IELP) as non-credit courses or; 
take ESL credit courses as an undergraduate or graduate student or; 
request specialized workplace ESL instruction in their location or ours. 

Special Programs

We can customize special programs for small groups during the summer months (late May through early August).

For these Special Programs, topics can integrate English Language Learning in the following areas:

  • Business
  • Engineering
  • Education
  • American Culture
  • or A Topic of Your Choice

Planning for these programs should begin by February.

In addition to face-to-face and online coursework, there are a variety of activities that can be included related to your topics or cultural trips.
