English Language Enhancement Courses (ELEC)
Resident programs are generally conducted in English, although a select number of our resident courses may include Russian interpretation. The Marshall Center also offers five week intensive ELECs, which are scheduled subject to funding availability. These courses take place before several of our programs in order to familiarize our participants with the terminology used in the programs they are about to attend and to improve their ability to make presentations and interact with their colleagues during these courses. English Language Enhancement Courses are planned in support of the Program on Terrorism and Security Studies (PTSS), Program on Cyber Security Studies (PCSS) and Program on Applied Security Studies (PASS).
English language prerequisite: Candidates should have a score between 60 and 79 on the English Comprehension Level (ECL) test or the American Language Course Placement Test (ALCPT).
