Your Creativity and the Future of Digital Media

Public relations (PR) is about balancing purposeful content and public perception. It’s about clear communication both in and out of crisis. It’s about developing, managing, and promoting a consistent reputation with outside audiences. In short, it’s engaging and educating the public.

The most impactful PR specialists utilize a massive toolchest—copywriting, public speaking, press releases, media relations, social media, influencer partnerships, promotional events, crisis management tactics, and more. Equip yourself for the task ahead through a BA degree in Strategic Communication with a concentration in Public Relations.
