The nine-credit Advanced Certificate in Nonprofit Public Relations program is designed for individuals with an academic background in communications, business or management who wish to enhance their knowledge of current public relations theories and practices.
Courses in the certificate are existing courses taught within the Master of Arts in Public Relations program. Students who are enrolled in the master’s degree program may complete the certificate if they request to do so and are approved by the department advisor.
For a student not enrolled in the Master of Arts in Public Relations degree program, credits earned in the certificate program may be applied toward the master’s degree program, provided the student applies and is fully admitted to the graduate program prior to completing the academic requirements of the certificate.
