The American English Institute (AEI), at California State University, Fresno has offered a non-credit intensive English program for international students since 1972. AEI courses are designed to prepare students for academic study in a college or university in the United States. In addition, the courses prepare students for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), which is required for admission to most colleges and universities in the United States. The courses also help students improve their communication skills for everyday life in an English-speaking country.
The Middle East Studies Program aims at strengthening and improving undergraduate instruction in international studies and foreign languages at California State University, Fresno. In addition to offerings in Persian and Arabic Language and Culture courses, students can earn a minor in Middle East Studies.
The purpose of the Peach Blossom Festival is to expose children to oral interpretations and allow them to have a positive experience at Fresno State. The children that attend are from all areas of the Central Valley.
Each spring, Fresno State students enroll in a course to tour children's theatre productions to elementary and middle schools throughout the San Joaquin Valley. This company of student actors has been a tradition at Fresno State for over 37 years, and we have toured to more than 40 schools and over 16,000 children in a single season.
