About Public Relations

Do you have a way with words and the ability to turn anything into a positive? The field of public relations involves ensuring that your clients not only receive public attention but that they are presented in the best possible light. Clients could include everyone from celebrities, politicians and business figures, right up to large multinational organisations or government agencies.

Edward Louis Bernays was an Austrian-American pioneer in the field of public relations and described PR as ‘practically as old as society’ – because public perception has always mattered. In today’s world, where everything and everyone is managed, branded, liked and shared, you can be assured that a career in public relations will last longer than a flash-in-the-pan pop star who didn’t have the right PR representation.

A role in public relations will see you working alongside other communications disciplines, and our online public relations courses will give you a strong foundation in communications essentials – you will gain a broad skillset that will transfer across the broader communications industry. You will study areas like marketing, media relations, media buying and planning, brand building, consumer behaviour, market research, media ethics and new communications technology.
