Public Relations

Public Relations is a concentration of the Communication major

Students interested in Public Relations have a rich and diverse field to study.

Public relations is best described as getting positive messages out to various "publics." That may be external communication, like TV, newspapers and websites, or internal communication, like employees or shareholders.

In the end, a public relations professional will wear many hats. On one day, you might be a spokesperson for the company for a media related item, on another day you might be publishing a website newsletter for workers.

Students will learn the theories and practices of Public Relations in hands-on courses and internships that will keep you energized and excited about this career choice! Off-shoots of PR include event planning and marketing campaigns.

Meet Professor Kirk Hazlett - Public Relations

Social media has become a critical part of the Public Relations curriculum at Curry, a concentration that Professor Kirk Hazlett oversees, and knows he needs to represent authentically.  "If I'm going to stand in front of the classroom and tell students about the importance of using social media for public relations, I better be able to show them that I'm using it and using it well," says Hazlett.
