|Field of Study:||Business/Corporate Communications
|Description:||This program is an intensive learning experience that will prepare you to be a flexible public relations and communications practitioner with excellent management, research, writing, technical and social skills. You’ll be capable of working independently and becoming productive quickly in a communications or consulting position. Employers and academics in Europe, the USA and most Commonwealth countries now recognize that the practice of public relations (corporate communications) is an applied discipline grounded in its immediate social context. To succeed in the field, practitioners need to develop and apply public relations administration skills and the knowledge of how contemporary societies work and interact with commercial, institutional and political forces and trends.
Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term(s) in a formal work environment. The work term(s) is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid. In programs with limited work term opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional work term stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
