Pathway Programs' Rising Popularity
Another major element in the new, changing landscape of
English language programs is the increasing popularity of
pathway programs, which allow students to study English
while also taking general education classes or classes in
their major and earning college credit in the process. This
solution can reduce the length of time and amount of
money students spend obtaining their college degrees.
Ohio University's Program of Intensive English
retooled its bridge program, which allowed students
to take both English and academic classes and receive
college credit. In the past, students could take any
academic classes they wanted, and they sometimes
took courses they didn't need to take in order to
graduate. The two sets of courses "almost operated in
separate spheres," says Gerard Krzic, director of Ohio
University's Ohio Program of Intensive English.
Under the new University Success Pathway Program,
which launched in the fall of 2017, students take set
courses in subjects-such as biology, history, and
music-that are required by the university. Students
and their English as a second language (ESL) instructors
attend the classes together, Krzic says, then meet to talk
about the classes to ensure that the students understand
the content and what is expected of them.
"Instead of just sitting in the classes by themselves,
[students] now have someone they can consult with,"
Krzic adds.
The University of Delaware recently launched its
own pathway program, called "Academic Transitions,"
designed by university faculty and administration
specifically to meet the needs of those who come to the
university, says Nadia Redman, assistant director of the

Office of Recruitment, Marketing & Communications.
The program is available to those who have been
conditionally admitted to the university's bachelor's
degree program, and students can earn up to 27 credits.
Along with studying English, students take the classes
they need to meet the requirements of the university or
their major, together with elective classes in business,
technology, or U.S. culture.
The University of Delaware has also increased its
international undergraduate admissions staff to help
speed the admissions process along, Redman says.
While schools such as Ohio University and the
University of Delaware have launched their own pathway programs, others have partnered with for-profit
institutions to develop such programs, says Szasz, who
is also immediate past president of EnglishUSA.
Some universities fear "academic integrity will be lost
if they partner with a for-profit institution," Szasz says.
For others, partnerships with for-profit programs may
bring expertise in curriculum design to help develop a
pathway program, financial resources to help the universities build classrooms and dormitories, or provide a
network of recruiters from around the world to attract
international students to the program, she says.

Setting Themselves Apart
Given the current climate of declining enrollments,
schools such as Pace University in New York have
moved to "a buffet of different offerings" in order to
build new revenue streams, says James Stakenburg,
executive director of Pace's English Language Institute.
As student demand shifts away from general English
courses, Pace and other schools have ramped up their
