This CIPR-accredited Public Relations course is designed to give practitioners the skills and ability to think creatively and adopt the latest tools in modern PR campaigns. PR is rapidly evolving as consumers/stakeholders increasingly take control on instantly accessible worldwide communication channels, and organisations rely less and less on newspapers and traditional media to disseminate information. With new technologies and social communication media on the rise, PR practitioners are more in demand than ever.
The MSc Public Relations is fully accredited by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, the professional body for public relations and public affairs practitioners. Students enrolled on the MSc Public Relations are eligible for CIPR Student Membership. This provides access to numerous industry and personal development opportunities as well as the member's area of the CIPR website. The CIPR website includes a dedicated student area which offers help and advice on entering the PR industry and free online training.
