The Bachelor of Public Relations (Honours) degree from Conestoga College was the first to be approved in Ontario and the fourth of its kind in Canada. 


Public relations is the management of communication between an organization and its public. Public relations specialists work in employee communication, media relations, investor relations, marketing communication and other specialized communication functions. 

This profession demands strong communication skills, diplomacy, strategic thinking and the ability to understand complex issues, and Conestoga's Bachelor of Public Relations degree responds with a case-based approach. 

The goal of this Public Relations (Honours) program from Conestoga College is to provide graduates with the critical thinking skills and the practical experience required to manage reputations, responses, and relationships on behalf of their organization.

We offer students the opportunity to combine their learning with paid co-op terms to allow students to apply theory to public relations practice. 

Courses in public relations management, global public relations, business and project management, and the ethics and philosophy of public relations offer unique perspectives.Students will be encouraged to join one of several professional organizations during their degree program. Professional development, networking, and volunteerism are of tremendous benefit to the public relations graduate throughout their career.


Graduates of this program will possess superior verbal and written communication skills, well-honed research skills, and the business acumen needed to manage issues, plan events, develop campaigns and lead communication projects.
