Research at PIE

One of PIE's three missions is research. PIE benefits greatly from our teachers, many of whom are PhD in Applied Linguistics students, and the Applied Linguistics faculty.  Their research continues to make the field—and the Program in Intensive English—richer and better.

Publication and conference participation

  • Our teachers give academic presentations at state, national, and international conferences including:
    • Arizona TESOL
    • Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, Inc. (TESOL)
    • American Association for Applied Linguistics (AAAL) 
  • Journal articles and book chapters are published by our teachers and Applied Linguistics faculty each year.
