Department of Communications - Advertising and Public Relations Program

Program Description

The Advertising/Public Relations degree program is designed to help students develop an in-depth understanding of the role and impact of advertising and public relations in both for-profit and nonprofit organizations. The program focuses on preparing students to become logical and innovative advertising and public relations professionals who also examine the ethical and cultural values in their practice.

The program also stresses both analytical approaches and critical thinking skills. Students will learn the foundations underlying persuasive messaging as well as analytical tools applied to advertising and public relations research. With this knowledge, students will improve their ability to identify and investigate current AD/PR-related issues by using an appropriate methodology and develop further strategic directions. In conjunction with the practical techniques, the program will also guide students to appreciate the cultural aspects and ethical issues in advertising and public relation practices. Students can tailor their messages on the basis of understanding cultural differences and engage with ethical concerns.

Upon completing the program, students will achieve a wealth of knowledge, practical skills, and the ability to think critically and strategically in developing promotional media messages and strategies.

Mission

The Advertising/ Public Relations degree program aims to train future advertising and public relations professionals in its laws, ethics, principles and practices, and to maintain high standards of achievement while promoting independent and critical thinking.
