What is CIEL?
The Center for International & English Learning (CIEL) is part of Portland State University's Office of Global Engagement & Innovation. CIEL is the academic wing of PSU's international programming and we offer a variety of services to meet the needs of our partners and students. Our programs are divided into short and long term options, with our shorter programs lasting anywhere from one week to one or two months, and longer programs from one quarter to one year of study at PSU. CIEL includes staffing and programming from three historical PSU departments, the Intensive English Language Program, International Special Programs, and the Portland Center (formerly Waseda Transnational Programs).
For more information about our current offerings we encourage you to explore our website to learn more about class contents, program prices, and the various support services available for our students.
