Public Relations Major

This major, nested within concentrations, is a professional program designed to meet, and in some cases surpass, the Public Relations Society of America’s Guidelines for Undergraduate Education. It teaches the kind of research, writing, planning and budgeting skills that students need to succeed in the job market and allows them to employ these skills on behalf of a variety of clients. An extremely active chapter of Public Relations Student Society of America gives students additional opportunities for learning and service.

All department majors must maintain a 2.50 grade point average in the major and earn at least a “C-” in all major courses that are required for graduation, unless otherwise noted.
