Public relations is about strategically planning and managing communication activities, building relationships and managing reputations. PR professionals work for a range of organisations, from governments to small businesses, and multinationals to non-profit organisations. An effective public relations practitioner needs a wide knowledge of communication, knows how the media works, understands strategy, is culturally sensitive and has a range of writing, visual and audio skills.

In this major you develop an understanding of reputation management and learn to make ethical judgments about strategic communication and communication planning. You gain an in-depth understanding of public relations writing, communication in a business environment, sponsorship and promotion, internal communication, persuasion, social media and communicating with diverse audiences.
