Director’s Message

Hello, and welcome to the Intensive English Program at Georgia State University!

It is my great pleasure to invite you to our program and see how you can prepare for great academic success in the future. We offer both full and part-time options for study, and provide English instruction in the areas of structure/composition, academic listening/speaking, academic writing, extensive reading, and oral communications. All of that is at GSU, the largest and most innovative university in Georgia, located in the vibrant downtown environment of Atlanta, Georgia, the capital of the South. Go Panthers!

Our two primary goals are to help you develop English language skills necessary to succeed, and to keep you safe in this challenging time- we encourage vaccinations (free for the entire GSU community), masks, and social distancing. Our faculty and staff are the best- they will do everything they can to make your time in the IEP rewarding, fun, and safe- welcome!

If you have any questions, please contact us directly at We can help you reach your goals of academic achievement.

All the best,

John Bunting, Interim IEP Director and Principal Senior Lecturer
