ESLI partners with universities in the U.S. and Canada to offer students premiere language instruction and university preparation in order to achieve full admission to their field of study. ESLI partner universities offer conditional admission to students which means that students who complete the ESLI language program do not have to take the TOEFL or IELTS exam.

About

ESLI offers conditional admission to hundreds of degree programs at the associate's, bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels.  Scholarship opportunities are also available for qualifying students.

Housed in the College of Health and Human Services at Western Kentucky University, we are the oldest MPH degree program in the state of Kentucky. The program is focused on preparing individuals for careers as practitioners of public health as well as providing students with the opportunity to integrate public health practice into their current career or academic paths. 

This Public Health program is offered by Western Kentucky University.

Students in our program can choose to specialize in one of three concentrations: Health Education, Environmental Health and Generalist. The Generalist concentration provides the student with the ability to customize their curriculum through selected public health focus areas in order to best meet their specific professional or academic goals.

Accreditation
