English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Courses for Undergraduates

All UWM undergraduate students must meet the English general education requirement (GER) for the Bachelor’s degree. Choose ELA writing courses for credit to complete this requirement. These courses have the curricular code EAP which stands for English for Academic Purposes.

Students enrolled in an EAP Academic Writing course will be able to:

  • Learn academic writing and reading skills needed for academic and professional success.
  • Overcome English language challenges of non-native speakers.
  • Have in-class and individual instruction (one-on-one or small group) by an experienced ELA writing teacher.
