IEP Mission Statement

International Students

The Pittsburg State University Intensive English Program provides a variety of specific language and cultural services to international students.  The main objectives of the IEP are to raise students' English language level through quality classroom instruction and to prepare students to pursue their academic degree programs at Pittsburg State University.  Furthermore, the IEP strives to provide opportunities for students to experience and learn about American culture.

The IEP is a full-time program featuring four eight-week sessions during the academic year and one eight-week session during the summer. Classes are offered at six levels, from beginning to advanced. Students spend approximately 20 hours per week in class, taking courses in grammar, reading, listening/speaking, writing, and academic preparation. The program is flexible, and every effort is made to meet individual student needs. 

The successful completion of the highest level of the Intensive English Program (Academic Preparation Course) is the equivalent of a 550 TOEFL score and can be substituted for the TOEFL requirement.

All members of the Intensive English Program faculty hold at least a master's degree in teaching English as a foreign language. Many of the instructors have teaching experience both in the United States and overseas. Most faculty members have successfully mastered a foreign language, making them aware of the language learning process that their students face.
