Humber’s English for Academic Purposes (EAP) certificate program is an intensive, full-time program that integrates reading, writing, listening and speaking skills with an academic focus. You will also benefit from study skills and individual tutoring support. The curriculum is geared toward non-native speakers of English who want to improve their writing, communication and critical thinking skills for entry into college diploma, degree, and postgraduate programs, or for further professional development.
It consists of:
– 18 hours per week of in-class instruction
– additional hours every week in completing individual and collaborative e-learning projects and tasks under the guidance of a teaching English as a second language (TESL)-certified lab co-ordinator.
Our faculty are highly respected, dedicated professionals who have been teaching, publishing and working in the English as a second language (ESL)/EAP field for many years. They all hold postgraduate credentials, including solid training in ESL/EAP teaching.
Our advisory committee provides regular review and input of our curriculum ensuring our program is always on the cutting edge of industry developments.
Improving your language skills in the EAP program has the additional benefit of allowing you to become familiar with Humber faculty, staff, administration and campus life. The whole Humber community guides your transition into your future academic study at Humber.
