Online Public Relations Programs

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, public relations management will be one of the fastest growing careers for the decade through 2016, and competition for that first job remains fierce. Those who have a degree in public relations plus experience from an internship or other related work should encounter the best job opportunities. As a public relations representative, you would represent the public face of businesses, organizations, and government offices.

One of the most important skills required to succeed in public relations is effective communication. Other essential skills include:

  • PR management and administration
  • PR principles and techniques
  • Research
  • Writing (especially news releases, proposals, speeches, and related items)
  • Visual communication (including desktop publishing and computer graphics)

Online programs in particular allow nontraditional students the opportunity to earn a degree with greater flexibility and from the convenience of their own home.
