The mission of the Intensive English Program (IEP) at Georgia State University (GSU) is to provide non-native English speakers with opportunities to develop the language and cultural competence necessary to make their success at an American university an achievable goal. As one of a family of programs within the Department of Applied Linguistics/ESL, the IEP is uniquely positioned to deliver a high quality research-based curriculum to move students along a continuum of language acquisition in preparation for academic study in English. To this end, the program relies upon the scholarship and expertise of faculty, staff and graduate students within the department who contribute to the formulation, evaluation and delivery of a dynamic educational and social experience in a multicultural environment, and who acknowledge IEP students as valuable informants in an ongoing process of refining ESL pedagogy. To ensure that this process continues to enhance the IEP students’ learning experience, the program is committed to providing professional development opportunities to both faculty and staff. The IEP is dedicated to fostering an international perspective within the Georgia State University community as well as within the communities from which its learners come.
The English for Professional Purposes: Law (EPP:L) program is an intensive seven-week program that provides language training in legal English. The program has been designed in collaboration with Georgia State University’s College of Law and is intended to prepare international LL.M. candidates for the demands of graduate coursework. Priority will be given to incoming LL.M. students who are required to take the program as a condition of admission. If space is available, other qualified students may choose to enroll in the program.
By the end of the summer, hard-working students will be prepared for the LL.M. program and will have…
improved their written and spoken English;
presented clear, logical, and well-supported legal reasoning in oral communication and writing;
become exposed to language and content encountered in the LL.M. program.
