Students in the Communication - Public Relations program from Anderson University (South Carolina) will be prepared to work in today's global communication network in a broad range of fields, including journalism, social media, marketing and sales, public relations, education and ministry.


Public Relations 

The Communication - Public Relations program at Anderson University (South Carolina) gives students basic communication, public relations, and media production skills, which are supplemented with a set of advertising- and marketing-oriented courses taught by the Anderson University business faculty. Writing for a variety of editorial platforms – print and broadcast news, digital media (blogs, Websites, social media, corporate communication), and marketing – is emphasized. In addition, the public relations concentration encompasses course work in public relations research, crisis management, video production, and oral presentation. Students in both concentrations have access to a media lab featuring leading software for video production, which is identical to that used by professional video producers around the world.

Gaining Experience

In addition to classroom studies, students can broaden their learning experience through projects that take them into the community. Whether developing public relations projects for local organizations or shooting video, students have many opportunities to apply their skills in real work-world situations. An internship that gives students the chance to work within their chosen concentration is required for graduation. Programs for study abroad are also offered.

Your Future as a Communicator

The degree in Communication is specialized enough to provide entry into specific job categories. For example, with the concentration in public relations, students can move into a position as a copywriter for an ad agency or as a fundraiser for a hospital. The degree is also broad enough to offer opportunities in fields as diverse as the legal profession, nonprofit organizations, and missionary work.
