English for Academic and Professional Purposes


Welcome to the NTC Office of English for Academic and Professional Purposes (EAPP). Our departments programs cultivate an international student's  professional and academic excellence at Tulane. This occurs by promoting interaction and communication both within the Tulane University community and with the global community as a whole. The department is composed of two main branches: EAPP for international students, and TESL for current and future ESL teachers.


The EAPP program is designed to prepare English language learners for professional engagements and academic writing skills while focusing on critical literacy and research skills. The program helps students to learn language effectively, solve communication issues as they occur and engage in social, academic, and professional discourses with confidence. Program courses include:

International Students

If you are interested in perfecting your English, please visit English for Academic and Professional Purposes. English language classes are currently only open to students enrolled at Tulane University.

Conversation Partner Program

The Conversation Partner Program pairs an international student with an American student or fluent English speaker to allow them to practice their English in casual, conversational setting and to help them adjust to life here at Tulane. This program helps to bridge the gap between the International and American communities on campus. Partners are created within the first few weeks of every semester, and pairs are expected to meet at least five times per semester, for at least an hour each time. This is a great way to meet people you wouldn't ordinarily meet and help an international student have the full Tulane experience. For more information, contact us at LearnEng@tulane.edu.

For the Spring semester, partners will be paired February 1st on a first come, first serve basis.
