As one of the fastest growing areas in the field of Communication, public relations offers a wide variety of careers to choose from and areas to work in. Our recent graduates are working across the media industries from non-profit and human relations organizations to corporate and governmental sectors. Our students have opportunities to build a strong portfolio of work which gives them a substantial edge in increasingly competitive job markets upon graduation. Furthermore, participating in the public relations workshop gives students the chance to practice skills learned in the classroom by allowing them to work with clients within the university and community to promote events through writing materials, creating posters, working events, and performing other promotional tasks. 

Why Public Relations?

Do you want to bridge the gap between the public and professional world? Public relations is unique and distinguishable from marketing and advertising due to its emphasis on building and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with an organization’s internal and external publics as well as specialization in media relations and journalistic writing. Concord University public relations students have opportunities to build a strong portfolio of work which gives them a substantial edge in increasingly competitive job markets upon graduation.

Graduates learn how to conduct complex social analyses, carefully construct media messages across multiple platforms, and navigate the ever-increasing presence of media.  Within this specialization, you will also gain experience in one-one interviewing, promotional material production, writing press releases, and building campaigns.  You will be prepared for your future career!
