What to expect from studying this Public Relations program

Learn about how culture grows and transforms and the major events that shaped our human society. You will develop creative and critical thinking. Become part of the discussion and the force of change that will shape our future and create a medium for discourse, idea exchange and the development of new ideas. 

By understanding the various aspects that make us human, you learn to bridge the gap and the differences between different cultures, and focus on the things we have in common, instead of our differences. 

Teaching is an important component of the Public Relations program, as once you will develop your knowledge of human culture you are responsible for sharing this knowledge with others, creating awareness and educating. 

You'll learn from professors with extensive experience in the field. At Suffolk, it's easy to gain hands-on experience of your own, too: Our campus is enviably close to Boston's leading PR firms and media organizations—employers who routinely hire Suffolk students as interns.
