English as a Second Language

St. Kate's offers English courses for students who are non-native English speakers.

If English is not your first language, you may be required to take some of the classes listed below. This will depend on the results of your MELAB, TOEFL or the St. Catherine University English Proficiency Test.

English as a second language courses:
ENGL 1200 Oral Communication for College
ENGL 2120 Immigrant Perspective in Literature
ENGL 2130 Written Communication for College
ENGL 2400 Grammar in Writing
ENGL 2600 English for Cross-Cultural Nursing

These courses will count toward the 130 credits required for graduation.

ENGL 2120 fulfills the liberal arts core requirement in literature. ENGL 2130 counts as a writing-intensive course. Together, ENGL 2120 and 2130 satisfy St. Kate's foreign language requirement.
