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 offer support to students to ensure they have the skills needed to draft, revise, and publish useful and insightful policy writing. This support is provided through writing workshops, professional development opportunities, and one-on-one assistance.

Current students can schedule a half-hour appointment with a Writing TA here and a writing consultation with the Writing Coach here.
