Lecturer in Public Policy


This module course will teach students the theory and practice of persuasive communication. Readings and cases will explore the interplay between communicating and policy making. Students will learn to make strong arguments, communicate well with evidence, and build their professional writing skills across cultures. Through assignments that strengthen written arguments (policy blogs) and speaking (policy presentations), students will have multiple opportunities to practice these essential skills, while also working in groups to build their abilities to communicate as part of a team.

Every course in the DPI communications series assumes a fluency with the English language.
