Masters Degrees in Public Relations train postgraduates in the promotion and maintenance of a favourable reputation of an individual or organisation, within the public eye.
Taught MA and MSc courses are typical for this field, though shorter programmes such as Postgraduate Diplomas and Certificates are also available. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Communications or Media Studies.
With a focus to developing your professional career, most programmes in this specialism offer the opportunity for you to gain professional accreditation from one of several bodies. These include the Chartered Institution of Public Relations (CIPR) and the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA).
Depending on the awarding qualification, these courses can be highly vocational, offering work placements and experience in industry. Others are more theoretical in nature, combining more taught elements. Training typically covers public relations writing, media relations, digital communications and client management. You will also explore strategy such as campaign planning and marketing, as well as business management.
Alongside roles in PR, your experience would make you suitable for HR management, news reporting, marketing and even consultancy for corporate businesses or government agencies.
