Public Relations

Employment of public relations managers and specialists is expected to grow 21 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations.

Seton Hall University's Master of Arts Public Relations program is one of the select universities to receive the Certification in Education for Public Relations (CEPR) from the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). This international recognition makes Seton Hall University one of the best places to study public relations in the world. Seton Hall is also one of the very few universities to offer an integrated public relations program including the B.A., M.A., Dual Degree 5-year B.A./M.A. and Professional Certificate in Public Relations.
