Leverage new communications skills through media and social outlets
Our Public Relations degree program will help you master the written, verbal, visual, and social elements that go with creating and maintaining an organization’s or individual’s effective public image. That’s why our foundational public relations courses and curriculum emphasize the essentials like writing, speaking, and social media, as well as the unconventional, such as what makes people think and behave the way they do.
You’ll learn to apply this behavioral knowledge to craft clutter-busting messages that get the attention of media and social outlets; generate no-cost marketing opportunities; and develop strategic relationships with community and media organizations. And because social media is so prevalent, you’ll get practical experience with every major channel, including Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, PitchEngine, HARO, and Tumblr, while also learning how to develop and deliver PR assets through blogs, websites, podcasts, and streaming video.
Develop professional competencies with leading-edge coursework
Franklin’s unique, hands-on approach extends even further, because all our classes use real-life scenarios and clients to simulate events, crises, or PR issues as they happen, preparing you to effectively handle similar situations when they arise in the workplace.
Our public relations curriculum is top-notch, mirroring the professional competencies and standards of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). Taught by active PR professionals and staffed with a high-powered advisory board, including an Emmy® Award-winning television news producer, our PR curriculum is regularly reviewed and updated to reflect employers most pressing PR needs.
Prepare to take a seat at the management table
Because PR is, at its core, about people and relationships, Franklin’s Public Relations degree program also focuses on human and societal behavior. So in addition to your business, management, and PR-specific coursework, your Franklin education will expose you to the social sciences through psychology and sociology classes, as well as ethics, research, and crisis communications.
The result is a comprehensive program that prepares you for a varied public relations career, making informed decisions, ready to take a seat at the management table, and prepared to deliver targeted messages based on a solid understanding of human behavior within the context of strategic relationships.
