Students in our Intensive English Program (IEP) can focus full-time on their English classes, concentrating on building language skills through immersion in a new culture.
IEP students interact with classmates from around the world and with North American EMU students through the LILAC program. These cross-cultural encounters speed the learning process and create lifelong memories.
IEP students are usually planning on higher studies at EMU or another U.S. college or working to advance in their careers all over the globe. In a typical semester, IEP has some 60 to 80 students representing 15 to 20 different countries. Our students come from three of the world’s largest faith groups — Christians, Muslims, and Buddhists.
