Professional Communication Seminar

Sharpen your academic and communication skills
to achieve your goals at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health!

August 16–22, 2015

Studying at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health will challenge your thinking and assumptions, as well as your ability to quickly and accurately evaluate conflicting information on public health issues and to communicate your conclusions clearly, concisely, and convincingly. The School’s learning environment is particularly challenging for those who have never studied in the U.S. before and need to develop new strategies to meet the demands of this very different educational culture.

Since 1995, the Professional Communication Seminar (PCS) has helped hundreds of international learners succeed by introducing them to the School’s interactive, participatory style of teaching and by sharpening their academic and communication skills.

PCS will help you:

  • Critically assess large amounts of conflicting evidence on a range of public health topics
  • Write a variety of public health papers and memos that present evidence-based arguments and recommendations
  • Take an active role in fast-paced classroom discussions
  • Speak more clearly and confidently in public
  • Manage time effectively, in order to balance the School’s demanding workload with other interests and activities

PCS will also introduce you to a network of other highly motivated learners from around the world who will become an important source of support and friendship at the School and for life.
