English for Academic Purposes

DePauw's English for Academic Purposes program offers workshops, one-on-one consultation, book groups, and panel discussions each semester designed to provide academic and language-related support for international and multilingual students. Sessions cover a variety of topics, including how to join the classroom conversation, reading strategies, techniques for improving pronunciation, citation and using sources, and many others. EAP faculty also teach English 110 and English 115 (Academic English Seminar I and II) and English 215 (Language, Writing, and Power), courses which help international students hone their English skills and prepare for rigorous academic study.

English 110: Academic English seminar I

This course develops and strengthens the English language fluency of incoming international students who begin to write, speak, and read at a college level.


English 115: Academic English seminar II

This course provides intermediate-level instruction for incoming international students. It focuses on academic writing proficiency and critical thinking in preparation for the more advanced skills required in the W course.
