Overview & Policies

The English Language Improvement Program in the Linguistics Department offers several courses to help graduate students develop the writing skills they need to succeed in their studies. In the courses, students are encouraged to work on writing assignments from discipline-related classes, and they receive individualized instruction.

These courses count toward required minimum credit hours needed for enrollment and do not affect the student's GPA as long as credit is attained. Students with questions about the classes can contact the English Language Improvement Program Director, Dr. Dawn Bikowski.
