Mohammed Errihani, Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Linguistics
Director of the English Language Program
I am an associate professor of linguistics and founding director of the English as a Second Language Program. In addition to directing the ESL program, I have also taught courses in linguistics, history of English, grammar and writing since I joined Purdue University Northwest in 2007.
My research focuses on language policy and planning, language in education policy, especially in Morocco, the teaching of English as a second/foreign language, and rhetoric.
Fact: I am fluent in 3 languages and have a working knowledge of two. Fun fact: I coached a college soccer team for one year after their coach was fired.
