Visit us to experience Harvard Kennedy School for yourself.

Join us for an information session, explore the HKS campus, sit in on a class, or meet with one of our student ambassadors. And be sure to look at our public events calendar for speakers, workshops, lectures and discussions. You’re welcome to attend them on any given day.

Plan to visit us during the academic year—from mid-September through November and mid-February through April—to get the full HKS experience.

Fall Open Houses

Our full day Fall Open Houses for all master's degree programs are one of the best ways to engage with HKS.

Information Sessions

We host information sessions to talk about our master’s degree programs, admissions process, financial assistance and student life at HKS. Sessions will return in April 2018. Please check back in the spring to register.

Attend a class at HKS

If you are interested in experiencing a class at HKS, be in touch with the course professor directly before your visit. See our current course listing and faculty directory. Very few classes meet on Fridays and degree program classes are not in session during the summer.

Meet an HKS Student Ambassador

The best way to hear about what it's like to be an HKS student is to talk to an HKS student.

The student-run Harvard Kennedy School Student Ambassadors Program will connect you with one of our current students. Our ambassadors talk with hundreds of applicants each year about their HKS experience and answer questions. Our student ambassadors will match you up with someone who best share your interests. Allow extra time for our students to respond during final exam periods and school breaks. Sign up to meet one of our students
