Our Offerings

The courses offered at Harvard Kennedy School provide an enriching curricular experience, and are organized around our seven academic areas. They include core courses that are required for earning a degree, along with electives, modules and January-term options to cater to different interests and schedules.

While classroom learning is integral to an HKS education, it is elevated by the many extra-curricular activities and programs, including lectures, seminars, brown bags, conferences and experiential learning, on- and off-campus.
