A minor is offered in Public Relations.
The Public Relations minor at Franklin Pierce University focuses on an interdisciplinary blend of marketing and mass communication courses and experiences. The program is designed to foster development of the knowledge and skills necessary to manage the relationships between an organization or individual and its publics through effective communication and persuasion, media and organizational relations, and legal and ethical decision making practices.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, public relations specialists are expected to grow “much faster than average” or 20% between 2008 – 2018. Many organizations are investing more heavily in public relations than ever before, especially with regard to social media and other web-based initiatives.
