The Summer Institute is a four-week program designed specifically for international students who will live in on-campus housing and attend classes with Georgia State students. All institute scholars take two three-credit courses. This program provides an insightful learning experience for international students and has many advantages including the opportunity to earn credits toward graduation, experience U.S. culture, thrive in an English-speaking environment, and learning how to plan for your future studies in the U.S.
Sharon Cavusgil, Senior Lecturer of Applied Linguistics had this to say about the Summer Institute:
“It was energizing to discuss cultural experiences with the Summer Institute students, help them develop important academic language and critical thinking skills, and observe them gain confidence with their abilities.”
