Intensive English Program (IEP)

IEP offers an eight-week Intensive English Program six times a year in exciting Los Angeles for ESL students with academic or professional goals, including passing the TOEFL for entrance into an American university.

Students from all over the world enroll in this multi-level program and can continue to improve their skills by advancing from session to session. Qualified students from outside the U.S. are eligible for a student visa. Individual courses may also be taken by part-time students. A Certificate of Achievement is awarded after successful completion of at least one eight-week session.

Vacation Study

The American Language and Culture Program creates custom programs for schools, businesses, governments and travel agencies. Programs are designed and delivered to meet the needs of the participants and their sponsors. Programs are typically designed around a core of English language skills and American culture. However, a wide range of academic, cultural and activity programs are available.

Students from around the world come to the American Language & Culture Program at CSU Dominguez Hills to study in the beautiful Southern California setting with its' mild climate and wide range of tourist attractions. Whether they come to see the natural wonders or to enjoy the local attractions like Disneyland, Hollywood and the Queen Mary, they have an unforgettable experience.
