The public relations master's program requires 36 credits and involves 13 months of intensive professional study. You may choose between two tracks: a professional track that prepares you to be a public relations practitioner and a second (thesis) track that leads you to doctoral study in preparation for a career in teaching or research. Professional track students complete their studies with a cumulative exam and may choose the workplace for their public relations internship. Those in the thesis track complete the program by writing a thesis.

See the 2019-2020 public relations master's program course list for more information.
