About the Public Relations Major
With a public relations major at the University of Mount Union, students will transition into ethical and creative practitioners who use disciplined and strategic thinking along with communication and media agility skills to solve problems and take advantage of opportunities while building and maintaining balanced and rewarding relationships with all stakeholders. Our public relations degree requirements focus on developing strategies rooted in theoretical concepts that embrace an integrated marketing communications approach. As part of our program, students will develop strategic public relations programs (with research, objectives, programming, and evaluation) for clients in the nonprofit community.
By getting involved in our Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter, Raider Student Media, and internships, students will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and apply the skills and knowledge they develop in the classroom.
Mount Union's public relations program was ranked #7 in Ohio and #22 in the Great Lakes region as a more focused program in College Factual's 2017 rankings. The program was also cited among institutions with the highest paid graduates.
