CELOP offers new part-time program

International professionals who are working in Boston and international students who are pursuing full-time degrees will be able to attend part-time courses offered at BU's Center for English Language and Orientation Programs (CELOP). "We're very excited to be able to open up our courses to this new population," says Margot Valdivia, director of CELOP. "Over the years, we've had a lot of requests from people who were already here in Boston - working at a career or pursuing a full-time degree - and only had a few hours a week to study English. We also will be able to better serve BU's community of international students and scholars, as well as their spouses and partners." CELOP is currently accepting registration for the fall semester, which runs from September 30 through December 12. For more information, visit www.bu.edu/celop/part-time or call 353-4870.
