English for Information Professionals 2020 is now available online!

Given the uncertainty caused by the reduction of services at US Embassies and Consulates coupled with the travel restrictions related to COVID-19, we have decided to offer English for Information Professionals online for the Summer 2020 session.

Please be assured that the full resources of the English Language Institute will be delivered without a sacrifice in the quality of instruction. Our instructors and student services staff will be at your disposal to help you navigate your online experience at Syracuse University.

Interested students should apply here to enroll in the online English for Information Professionals program.

English for Information Professionals is a six-week course designed specifically for graduate students entering the iSchool . The English for Information Professionals program focuses on developing the advanced communication skills necessary to present to major stakeholders such as iSchool faculty and prospective employers. Students will develop the critical reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills necessary for success at the graduate level, specifically in the context of information studies programs. Small class sizes allow for personalized attention to the specific language-learning needs of each student, leading to both enhanced skills and increased confidence.

Overall, the English Language Institute is a wonderful place to start your academic career. We focus on enhancing language skills as well as providing guidance during the transition period to a new culture. At the ELI, we have a very close community and help students learn more about Syracuse University as well as the Syracuse community to help students succeed academically and socially.
