Our theme-based, rigorous, academic year-long programs are designed for motivated international students with lower TOEFL scores who wish to take regular university courses at PSU, but who would benefit from English language and academic/daily living support to optimize their success. Our Academic English courses directly support the content of your regular PSU classes. We have been a Waseda/PSU cooperative program for ten years and are now run by the PSU Office of International Affairs. Waseda University and other international students attend our programs. No university agreement is required to attend the Transnational Programs, which are open to all who qualify.
After completing one of our programs, students achieve a high level of English, earn credits they can transfer back to their home institution, gain knowledge of subjects not always offered at their home university, obtain an understanding of American culture and create lasting friendships. Our students regularly comment on how this experience has influenced their future by opening their eyes to different life choices.
