Humber’s English for Academic Purposes (EAP) certificate program is an intensive, full-time academic pathway program. The program 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 graduate certificate programs or for further professional development.
It consists of:
- 18 hours per week of in-class instruction
- additional hours every week completing individual and collaborative e-learning projects and tasks under the guidance of a Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) certified lab coordinator.
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 graduate credentials including solid training in ESL/EAP teaching.
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 Humber community guides your transition into your future academic study at Humber.
Our advisory committee provides regular review of and input into our curriculum, ensuring our program is always on the cutting edge of industry developments.
We offer upper level students the option to finish their studies at the North or Lakeshore Campus.
