The ESL academic certificate program provides an opportunity for students to enhance their reading, writing, speaking, and listening English skills in order to participate in further academic coursework. As part of this program, students will take core ESL reading and writing requirements and choose from a variety of elective courses, which expand their language proficiency in other skill areas. Students will also complete at least two required English courses, which may be applied towards an associate’s degree or another certificate. This program is ideal for students who are primarily interested in an advanced two-semester immersion in English, as well as for those who intend to pursue an associate’s degree. Students earning this certificate will be required to take the majority of their courses at the Main Campus.
