All EAP classes except G130 and G131 fulfill the Cultural Understanding requirement in most undergraduate degree plans.
EAP classes are small, ranging in size from five to twenty students and are taught by trained and experienced teachers using interactive, communicative teaching styles. The classes focus on the academic English skills students need to be successful at the university level. Special emphasis is given to teaching advanced listening, speaking and reading skills, as well as complex English grammatical forms and structures, and academic composition.
Level I: Due to limited language proficiency, students at this level are generally restricted to taking only EAP, physical education, and one mathematics or computer science course.
Level II: At this level, students generally take three EAP classes, but sometimes only one/two plus two freshman-level content courses. Courses requiring extensive reading and writing should be avoided. These courses can be taken over two semesters. If students are placed in all four courses at this level, they must first complete G111, G114, and G130 before taking G112. If they are not required to take G130, then they may register for G111, G114, and G112 in the same semester. The progression of courses should be G111, G114, G130, and then G112. We do not recommend taking all four courses during the same semester.
Level III: At this level, students are capable of taking a full academic load of classes, although courses should probably be restricted to general, freshman-level courses.
