ELP Summer Academic Language Program
Yale Summer Academic Language Program
Advanced language proficiency is not easy to come by, but is essential for success at Yale. It is a prerequisite for being given a Teaching Fellowship (usually beginning in the second year). It is also an essential part of being an active scholar and researcher in one’s field, and for being successful in the job market upon graduation. It also takes time; our program is designed to give students an early start on this process.
The Yale Summer Academic Language Program has been specially designed to help incoming PhD students in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. The program seeks to prepare incoming students for life in the US, New Haven, and Yale. The program is an intensive one, with a wide range of activities, including classes, conversation sessions with senior graduate students, and directed self-study modules.
