The Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) Communications Program helps students improve, develop, and execute written, spoken, and digital policy communications skills.

Program offerings include for-credit communications courses, workshops throughout the academic year, as well as writing consultants who offer one-on-one consultations for HKS students.


The HKS Communications Program consists of both for-credit and not-for-credit offerings.

A series of for-credit communications courses focusing on public speaking and writing are taught by communications faculty.

In addition, more than 60 workshops are available throughout the academic year.


We offer free private sessions with writing consultants, who can help with writing assignments, or polishing a draft for publication.

Resources are also available for Writing, Public Speaking and Digital Communications.
