Focus Area: Public Relations/Organizational Communication
The Public Relations/Organizational Communication focus area is an interdisciplinary field where career opportunities exist in both the business and non–profit sectors. Public relations or organizational communication specialists provide both internal and external communication for the business/organization they represent and therefore need to have a strong understanding of the relationship between communication, business, and media. After graduation, you will be prepared to transfer to a four–year institution and pursue a career in public relations, corporate communication, image consulting, graphic design, media relations, promotions/sales, advertising, publicity, fund raising, publications/editing, technical writing, marketing, or management.
