English for Academic Purposes

The Bloomberg School of Public Health offers extradepartmental assistance that focuses on academic written communication in writing American English. 

This is not a traditional English As A Second Language course and its primary focus is academic writing.  Please note that during the 2017-2018 academic year, this class is offered twice—in the fall and in the spring.

You may choose to register in either fall or spring. However, in the fall, you must register for both 1st and 2nd terms as the class meets from September to December; in the spring, register in both 3rd and 4th terms as classes meet from January to May.

A grade of Pass/Fail is given at end of the 2nd term for the fall course and 4th term for the spring course. One absence is allowed for in-person class. There will be a total of seven class meetings, on campus and online. In addition, one individual conference will be offered (TBA).
