In our International STEM Scholars Program, you will be part of a personalized online classroom environment where you can focus on learning the skills most important to you while engaging with classmates from across the globe. Your course work will be divided into three complementary parts: our Professional/Graduate Skills Course, Specialized STEM Workshop, and English Enhancement Tutoring.
Professional/Graduate Skills Course
Our Graduate Skills course will help you develop your academic note-taking, writing, research, communication, and presentation skills to prepare you for teamwork, discussions, debates, and other verbal interactions in English. As part of the class, you will learn to construct a graduate-level research paper and deliver a professional presentation.
Our STEM workshop will introduce you to different aspects of the STEM field through a guest speaker series and Q&A sessions. Additionally, you will gain insight into what is expected of STEM graduate students and how to prepare for your program. Workshop topics will include how to find campus resources, what to know about course selection, how to be a productive member of a study group or presentation group.
In our language tutoring sessions, you will meet with our language tutor to receive individual feedback on ways to strengthen your listening, pronunciation, and speaking skills. We tailor our instruction to meet your current skill set.
