Enhance Your Communications Skills

The Harvard Horizons initiative highlights the training and tools available through GSAS, in academic departments, and at the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning that help all students communicate the substance of important academic work to a broad audience. These opportunities allow students to master the communications skills that all graduates need to persuasively describe their topic to funders, hiring committees, interviewers, and the general public.

Enhance your skills by applying to become a Harvard Horizons scholar and take advantage of an intensive and targeted series of mentoring and professional development opportunities under the direction of Pamela Pollock, assistant director of the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning. The mentoring sessions focus on the art of effective communication, including voice coaching and oral and visual presentation tutorials, and are designed to enrich the scholars' professional development and help prepare them to present their ideas in compelling and concise talks at the Harvard Horizons Symposium.
