English Language Program

As Brandeis University's international student body continues to expand, so does the need to support them linguistically.

The English Language Program (or ELP), formerly the English as a Second Language Program, is designed to serve non-native speakers of English. We offer individual tutorial sessions for undergraduates and GSAS students in both written and oral skills as well as intensive English classes for GSAS and IBS students designed to develop oral communication, analytical writing, and critical thinking skills.  The ELP works jointly with the Gateway Scholars Program, sharing resources to benefit all English language learners.
