Political Speechwriters

Education and Training Requirements

High School

Since speechwriters need to be strong communicators, you should take as many English, speech, and communications courses as you can. Take courses in civics, history, and government as well. If possible, join a speech or debate team to gain experience researching current events, analyzing data, and presenting information to others.
