Our instructors come from a wide range of professional communication backgrounds, each bringing their own unique experience to the classroom. You will gain fundamental knowledge and communication skills, including:

By being involved with the other disciplines — journalism, broadcasting, and information design — you learn to collaborate with members of the university community and media, a skill that is essential to the success of public relations professionals.
