Center for Applied Studies in English

Our mission is to transform lives through higher education in Christ-centered community. As a Christian community of scholars, we model the heritage, resources, and practices of the Christian Faith as we prepare non-native speakers of English to function to the best of their ability both academically and socially at any university level. Through the application of current research, we seek to deliver the highest quality of intensive English instruction.
