The Public Relations minor is designed to be of benefit to students planning a career in a field related to Public Relations, such as Marketing and Communications. The Public Relations minor provides students with a variety of introductory and intermediate skills in the practice of Public Relations. Using analytical and strategic planning, students gain strong writing practice, and may add experimental learning through an internship. Students with a PR minor may also join the student-run Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter at YCP.
Students must attain 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to a subsequent Business course (refer to the course description for specific prerequisites). Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen the time to graduation. Students graduating with a declared major in Public Relations may not simultaneously declare a minor in Public Relations.
