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:
- EAPP 1000 Composition and Reading
- EAPP 1050 Multicultural Speech
- EAPP 3030 Academic and Professional Rhetoric
- EAPP 3510 Teaching and Working Abroad
- EAPP 3520 Living and Working Abroad
- EAPP 3830 Global English in Business

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.
