The public relations master's program involves 13 months of intensive study. You may choose between two tracks: a professional track that prepares you to be a public relations practitioner (40 credits) and a second thesis track (40.5 credits) that leads you to doctoral study in preparation for a career in teaching or research. Professional track students complete their studies with a culminating experience and may choose the workplace for their public relations internship. Those in the thesis track complete the program by writing a thesis.

See the 2020-2021 public relations master's program course list for more information.
