What is a Master in Public Relations? A Master in Public Relations prepares a graduate to serve as the liaison or intermediary between a company or organization and the public. These degrees teach scholars public relations strategies, explore the legal and ethical foundations of public relations, and often include classes in writing and social media for public relations. Students may also learn the basics of communications, media, and business, depending on their degree focus and the program they choose.

A master’s program in public relations teaches many valuable skills that students can use in their careers and day to day life. Productive communication, public speaking, and social media management are skills that are useful in a wide range of jobs, not just those directly considered part of the public relations field.

The cost of earning a Master in Public Relations varies depending upon the institution the student chooses to attend. The final cost of the degree generally includes tuition, books, materials, and activity fees charged by the institution.

Government institutions, medium- and large-sized companies, and individuals in the public eye all employ people to manage public relations. This means that public relations graduates have a number of different ways to use their skills. Some public relations officers are employed full-time while others choose to work in a freelance or consulting capacity. Many public relations workers also find themselves managing social media accounts for their employers.

Many colleges and universities offer the opportunity to earn a Master in Public Relations online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
