Academic English Program
The Academic English Program is designed for students who are enrolled in, or who are entering, undergraduate or graduate degree programs at New York University or other universities. It emphasizes critical thinking, persuasive writing, public presentation, and class participations—skills essential for success at an US university. Some students study full-time in preparation for degree studies; others, who are already enrolled in degree programs, study on a part-time basis.
Courses are offered at each ALI English proficiency level. You may only register for courses that correspond to your level rating, which can be found in your ALI test record in PeopleSoft. Course enrollment must be completed with the assistance of your departmental academic adviser.
