Public Relations

Major in Public Relations

A bachelor of science degree in public relations from the Greenlee School will provide you with the concepts, skills and expertise needed to help organizations build mutually beneficial relationships with diverse publics. The knowledge and tools you’ll develop through the P R curriculum ensure you can enter fields such as corporate communication, government affairs and public relations firms. Coursework in this major focuses on writing, research, digital and emerging media, and professional abilities. You are required to complete a capstone internship experience to practice and refine your skills.

Greenlee School public relations students have interned at Weber Shandwick, Caesars Entertainment, Spong PR (now Carmichael Lynch Relate), Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the Baltimore Ravens and many other agencies, firms, businesses and government entities.

In 2017, our public relations program was approved for certification by the Public Relations Society of America Board.

All Greenlee majors are required to pass a grammar test prior to enrolling in JL MC 201: Reporting and Writing for the Mass Media. Learn more about the Poynter Institute Exam (PIE).
