IEP for Current Students
Established in 1976, the Intensive English Program (IEP) is located on Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn, New York campus. The IEP provides academic English language instruction to more than 500 matriculated graduate and undergraduate students annually. In addition, two certificate of English language proficiency programs run under the IEP’s umbrella: full-time Certificate of English Proficiency (CEP) programs and the Intensive English Summer Certificate program.
Study in the Intensive English programs is both rigorous and varied, and include a great deal of instructional content based in art and design. Our classes are small (fifteen or fewer students per section) with a strong emphasis on academic skills. The faculty is composed of fully-qualified, creative instructors of English as a second language who design and teach their courses as a team. Fall and spring semesters at Pratt Institute meet for fifteen weeks. Summer sessions are six weeks long, and students may choose to take Full-day English Immersion classes (twenty-four hours per week) or Morning or Afternoon Intensive classes (twelve hours per week). All of our curricula feature courses designed for those students who wish to study academic English in the most dynamic arts and cultural center in the world.
