Chatham University Launches an English Language to Undergraduate Degree Pathway Program for International Students

PITTSBURGH: Chatham University has launched Pittsburgh Pathways, a new program that teaches non-native speaking students English, while also allowing them to earn up to 36 undergraduate credits towards a degree at Chatham University or another university.

Students enroll in Pittsburgh Pathways for two or three terms, depending on their language level, and receive a combination of English as a Second Language (ESL) and undergraduate academic courses of their choosing. Upon successful completion of the program, Pathways students receive guaranteed admission to a degree program at Chatham University or can transfer their credits to another institution.

Pathways students will live at Chatham’s new Eden Hall Campus, a fully sustainable campus 25 minutes north of Pittsburgh, and access to classes, social opportunities and cultural activities on both Eden Hall and Shadyside campuses.

“With the Pittsburgh Pathways program, Chatham is able to build upon the success of its English Language Program to create new opportunities for international students to improve their English, while saving time and money in earning credits toward their degree at Chatham or another institution,” states Chris Musick, Associate Vice President of International Affairs.
