Careers

What Can I Do with a Minor in Public Relations?

Building positive communication for a private company, a nonprofit organization, or a government agency is no easy task in an era of instant social media and a 24-hour news cycle. If you're interested in supplementing your major by studying how to build good relationships with stakeholders through credibility, trust, and high ethical standards, a Public Relations minor could be perfect.

You'll develop excellent written and spoken-language skills, and a working knowledge of news media and communication theory. You'll learn how to design public-relations campaigns, analyze problems, find solutions, and manage communications effectively in a global work environment. You will also be given opportunities to gain workplace experience through internships and on-campus media outlets.
