At Harris Public Policy, we’re committed to your success. To help make the most of your experience, we offer the following academic support programs. 

Pre-Orientation Programs

Academic English Pre-matriculation Program

The University of Chicago's Academic English Pre-Matriculation Program (AEPP) is an approximately three-week summer program designed to support incoming international students who have not studied in the United States previously.  The program improve speaking proficiency in academic and professional contexts and introduce the cultural and professional resources at the University of Chicago.

Math Camp

Harris Math Camp is a three-week review course designed to ensure that incoming Master's students are proficient in algebra and calculus. The course prepares students for the mandatory math exam–which is held during orientation week–and their core course work. 

Writing Program

The Harris Writing Program’s mission is to ensure students graduate with the skills needed to craft, revise, and publish useful and insightful policy writing based on rigorous data analysis. The Writing Program achieves this mission by providing academic support through one-on-one assistance, writing workshops, and professional development opportunities. Because data doesn't speak for itself, the Writing Program is here to help students find and communicate a story that matters.
