PUBLIC RELATIONS - GAINING EXPERTISE

Course Code: CEPR 210
This is the second Public Relations course so chances are you completed the first one and now... you're hooked. No wonder: PR is a dynamic profession with revenues exceeding those of advertising in many sectors. In this course, you'll broaden your understanding of PR by examining the role and contribution of the publicist to corporate, non-profit and political organizations. You'll hone your skills of researching, identifying opportunities, planning, managing and mentoring the deliverables. And best of all, you'll take part in a key class project: the creation of a complete media relations campaign—just like the ones you'll create in your new career.
