What is EAS?

English for Academic Success (EAS) The Intensive English Center offers a special program in which students will learn how to effectively communicate in English in an academic environment by enhancing their overall language skills. The overall goal of this course will be to assist students in successfully completing the academic course they will be taking concurrently with IEC’s EAS course. Instructors will provide guided support to help students with the material included in the academic course, covering a variety of disciplines in the College of Arts and Science, School of Business, and the College of Engineering. Participants in the program will enhance presentation skills, pronunciation, intonation, word stress, and fluency. In addition, this course will focus on listening to academic lectures and learning effective note-taking skills. Students will acquire strategies to enhance summarizing, analyzing, paraphrasing skills, and learn effective ways to present their work in writing with more confidence.
