EPGS is a rigorous program which aims to prepare students for their graduate-level coursework. Students attend English content and skills classes 5 hours each day. These classes are designed to hone the language skills you specifically need to succeed in graduate programs and focus on English for Academic Purposes. You will work on reading and listening strategies, note-taking, research and report writing, and public speaking. You will also meet weekly with a writing tutor for personalized feedback on your assignments. Additionally, Graduate Life Skills workshops will introduce you to various campus and community resources with the intention of addressing additional needs outside of the academic needs covered by your coursework.
