What's New? It's all about Professional Development!
It's a new year, and I am proud to share an exciting addition to our Public Relations Program. Is developing your professional toolbox one of your goals? Our Public Relations Majors enrolled in PRS441 will have the invaluable opportunity to participate in a Professional Development Series. Facilitated by the Office of Experiential Learning, the Professional Development Series will focus on effective networking tactics, preparing for the typical interview questions and effective business communication tactics. A special thank you to Tamura Leso, Coordinator, Experiential Education Liaison, for her expertise in facilitating this initiative. We welcome Bill Tavares, Media/Community Relations Manager from the Connecticut Sun, as our guest speaker.
Now, more about our Public Relations Program...
Students earn a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Public Relations by applying to the Major. Students may declare a Minor in Public Relations. Exploding with opportunities, Public Relations as a career path embraces a global flair while continuing to impact local community and public service initiatives. With a liberal arts focus, this program provides students with the necessary skills for a successful career in Public Relations. The program emphasizes effective writing skills throughout the course of study. There will be many opportunities to enhance your public speaking or journalism skills. Students will also develop professional competency in analytical methods, including research techniques and the strategies and tactics of an effective public relations campaigns.
I encourage interested students to carefully review the details of this Major. I would be very happy to meet with any students to discuss the requirements of the Public Relations Program.
