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, about half of the students in the program are international students, and the other half are permanent immigrants, refugees, or U.S. citizens who have been in the U.S. anywhere from six months to twenty years. With an enrollment of over 1,300 students, our program is the largest of its kind in the CSU system. We offer between 60 and 70 sections of a total of nine credit-bearing classes each semester.
