This course is designed for students whose intended graduate program requires them to increase their English proficiency to CEFR B2.2 (IELTS 6.5 or equivalent) before successfully matriculating as a degree-seeking student. Students must demonstrate English proficiency at the CEFR B2.1 level (IELTS 6.0 or equivalent) in order to enroll in this course. The course will be offered for the first 8 weeks of Fall/Spring semesters, and specific course offerings will be tailored to the specific graduate program (for example, Business English or Technical English depending on field of study). Students who successfully complete this course do so by demonstrating the ability to understand and communicate at CEFR B2.2 English language proficiency with some scaffolding and limited application; this course is the first in a two-part sequence leading to CEFR B2.2 English proficiency (IELTS 6.5 or equivalent). This course does not count towards a degree, but successful completion is required for progression in the Masters Accelerator Program.
