What will I learn?

From managing relationships between consumers and their favourite companies to planning an event for a local non-profit or strategizing a social media campaign you will learn to connect our world through public relations.

Your job is to build relationships between your clients and the people they need to engage. From brand development and crisis control to media relations, Public relations builds the reputation and the voice behind the organization.

We teach you to think strategically, write effectively and to plan accordingly. From learning to develop and evaluate communications campaigns to making the most of a client’s social media and mobile platforms, you’ll learn the essential skills needed for jobs in agencies, government, non-profits and the corporate world. In your senior year, you’ll engage with real clients, performing research, proposing strategies, and producing a written campaign you’ll present to the client.

To broaden your skills, you may elect courses in such areas as sports, international, fundraising and health care public relations. All public relations majors take a minor in an area that complements their career or personal interests to help them focus their goals. Our proximity to New York and Boston provides you with valuable internship opportunities to gain real-world experience in global organizations.
