IEP courses are intended for matriculated students at Pratt. The content of all IEP courses has an art and design focus or centers on topics of interest to artists and designers. For graduate students, IEP tuition is equivalent to the tuition of a two-credit course. Continuous enrollment in the Intensive English Program is required until exemption criteria has been met.
IEP LEVEL 6:
An integrated skills intermediate-level course that aims to develop all skills in order to build toward academic readiness in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Students read authentic materials such as essays, novels, magazine and newspaper articles, and textbooks, and work on reading skills such as faster reading, inference, and vocabulary development. They also listen to authentic materials such as films, websites, and lectures (live or recorded) and work on giving effective presentations using PowerPoint, visual aids, or handouts.
IEP LEVEL 7: ACADEMIC SKILLS
An integrated-skills advanced-level course in which students—primarily undergraduates preparing for freshman English courses—develop their ability to do university-level work in English. They focus on critical reading skills, give sophisticated presentations using PowerPoint, visual aids or handouts, write research and argument papers, and listen to authentic materials and lectures (both live and recorded).
IEP LEVEL 7: ART HISTORY LINK
Students in this course, who are all undergraduates, are enrolled simultaneously in a regular art history course. The teacher works with the art history professor to develop assignments to support the students with the reading, writing, and listening demands of the art history course.
IEP LEVEL 7: THESIS WRITING
In this class, graduate students work intensively and independently with their instructors to develop their writing, research, and citation skills. They focus on working with appropriate academic and professional sources, paraphrasing, summarizing, and using appropriate style sheets. They also develop their skills in delivering academic and professional presentations and giving, receiving and managing feedback on their and others’ work.
