National University’s comprehensive selection of English Language & Pathway Programs (ELP) benefit students, visitors, and professionals seeking to improve academic skill and performance, develop academic, workplace, and social communication, and expand intercultural competence. The wide selection of one-term-per-month courses, including customizable curriculum for cohorts, provides great opportunities for international students wishing to pursue their academic studies in the United States or other English-speaking countries, professionals with a goal of expanding discipline-specific studies, and persons interested in the English language and American cultural experience. Courses are facilitated by educators with advanced degrees in adult education, creative and academic writing, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and multicultural-multilingual education. With the goal of globalization, consistent development is devoted to the internationalization of the curriculum in all language and pathway programs.
