The Composition for Multilingual Students Program serves students enrolled at San Francisco State University who are non-native speakers of English. The CMS Program offers courses that fulfill SFSU's graduation requirements for written and oral communication; these courses are taught by instructors who are experienced in designing and teaching academic writing, grammar and speech courses for non-native speakers. Today, our program is comprised of international students, permanent migrants, refugees, and U.S. citizens who have been in the U.S. anywhere from six months to twenty years. With an enrollment of over 1,000 students, our program is the largest of its kind in the CSU system. We offer between 40 and 50 sections of a total of six to nine credit-bearing classes each semester. Please explore our website to learn more about our classes offered, and how students can join the program.
