Program Overview

Strong English-language skills are required for success in the American higher education system, preparing students to succeed in transfer-level coursework and degree/certificate programs. Outside of higher education, the ability to communicate effectively in English is a requirement for many jobs and stronger English skills can lead to promotions and more diverse employment options. The advanced certificate of specialization signals readiness for non-writing-intensive college coursework in English.
