Resources for Prospective and Current Students

Beyond courses directly associated with the M.A. in Philosophy for International Students, students in the program also have access to several resources on Purdue's campus to help them transition to their new cultural and academic environment:

Purdue Language and Cultural Exchange (PLaCE)
PlaCE supports international students who learned English as a second language, and who will benefit from language and cultural support as they adjust to life at a U.S. university. Students in the M.A. in Philosophy for International Students have the option to deepen their English language skills through courses offered by PlaCE.

The Oral English Proficiency Program (OEPP)
The OEPP offers several resources for international students, including administering the Oral English Proficiency Test (OEPT) and a course on Classroom Communication for International Graduate Students (ENGL 62000).

Purdue Writing Lab
The Purdue Writing Lab offers writing consultations and tutoring to all Purdue students, faculty and staff on the West Lafayette campus.
