The program is designed to strengthen the strategic public relations skills of public relations professionals and those wishing to enter the field. Public relations is a growing profession. In fact, public relations is ranked in the Best 100 Jobs in America. Employment of public relations managers and specialists is expected to grow 21 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations.
Our courses also help to prepare students for Accreditation in Public Relations (APR), which is offered by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA).
A recent study by the PRSA (2012) found that 95% of business leaders believe that executives at all levels should have a working knowledge of basic public relations skills.
