Study English and American Culture

At the Intensive English Center (IEC), students study academic English with international students from across the world. They learn more about different cultures as they prepare for their future university classes.

The IEC offers high beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels of academic English language instruction. Students receive 18-20 hours of English language instruction per week.

More than 80 percent of our students move on to university degree programs.

IEC supports students' cultural and academic adjustments to life in the United States.
