For 25 years, the IEC has been offering excellent programs helping international students achieve their goal of learning English for academic or personal purposes. The rigorous curriculum combined with cultural and social events provide students a dynamic environment to improve their language skills, create new friendships, and prepare for future success. I look forward to welcoming you to the IEC community!

- Since 1988, the Intensive English Center has been offering a program of courses and activities designed to meet the special needs and interests of people from other countries who want to study at universities in the United States or improve their English to meet personal and professional goals. The IEC faculty consists of experienced instructors holding advanced degrees. Class size is small, which makes it possible for each student to receive personal attention from the instructors.
