Personalized studies. A portion of the campaign consulting certificate is made up of courses chosen by you, allowing you to study the topics that most interest you or align with your career goals.

Campaign consulting certificate curriculum

The campaign consulting certificate — through political science curriculum and a required internship — will focus on four core areas of study: communication skills, research skills, knowledge of American politics and civic responsibility. Throughout the program, you will learn how to write and speak effectively; construct research questions using appropriate sources and methods to answer them; analyze political behavior, institutions and law or policy; and demonstrate the sense of responsibility necessary to become a constructive global citizen.
