The online Master of Arts in Public Relations balances the practical application of public relations skills with theory, giving students insights into how entrepreneurship, ethical frameworks, and globalization provide key components shaping public relations. Combining public relations topics and media communications, the program teaches students how to design, perform, and understand public relations research; solve communications problems; strategic-level analysis and critical thinking; and how to review trends and anticipate implications for future communications needs and challenges. Graduates are eligible to hold job titles including public relations and communications assistants, officers, specialists, directors, managers, and coordinators as they manage the spread of information to the public.
