English As a Foreign Language (ESL)

ESL 501 —   Acad Reading & Writing  (3 credits)  

This course is designed for college students who are English language learners, have been accepted into an graduate degree program, and who have achieved a Paper Based Test of English as a Foreign Language (PBT TOEFL) score, or an International English Language Testing Systems (IELTS) score in keeping with the current admissions requirements, but are in need of additional academic language support. This course provides further support for academic reading and writing at the graduate level to ease the transition into the academics of the University. Students will receive integrated reading and writing instruction that underscores the rigors of American graduate university expectations. Through guided practice and support, students will explore different genres of reading and writing found in American academia and be able to fulfill course work expectations independently.
