Academic Intensive English Program

At the AIEP, we offer three semesters of intensive English language preparation. The primary goal of the program is to prepare students with the linguistic and cultural skills to be successful and fully participate in university classes at Nazareth or elsewhere in the United States.

Outside of the classroom, U.S. culture is introduced through our Conversation Partner Program, as well as  extracurricular cultural programs including trips to Niagara Falls, local museums, historical landmarks, and other off-site locations.

Students actively participate in a variety of on-campus student-run clubs and organizations, and take organized trips to area attractions including New York City, Hershey Park, and more. Additionally, AIEP students are engaged locally, regionally, and globally in community service and service-learning opportunities.
