English Language Institute

Welcome to Southern Miss!

Located on the main campus of The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, the English Language Institute has been “Helping the World Learn English Since 1947” and is one of the oldest intensive English programs in the United States. For 75 years we have welcomed students from all over the world to the Hospitality State, and are thankful to have had the opportunity to share this experience with so many students.
