Public Relations at Messiah College 

The public relations major at Messiah College combines theoretical understanding with real-world best practices to prepare you to be a strategic and ethical communicator in a rapidly changing field. 

Careers in public relations are expected to significantly increase in the next five years and Messiah is one of the few colleges in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) to offer a public relations major.

In addition to expert classroom instruction, experiential opportunities abound in such areas as campaign projects, off-campus internships and on-campus public relations activities. As a senior, you will manage a public relations campaign for a nonprofit client from start to finish including research, planning, implementation and evaluation.

Interested in event planning, crisis communication, media relations, social media, publications or fundraising? Your Messiah education will prepare you to work in any one of these fields for nonprofit or corporate companies.
