PR Minor

About the PR Minor

Public relations is a growing field in the U.S. and globally.

How can the PR minor at the University of Illinois prepare you for one of these jobs?

We’ve designed the curriculum so that you will learn basic and intermediate strategies that organizations use to develop and maintain positive relationships with their stakeholders and internal and external publics, such as employees, journalists and bloggers, investors and donors, and geographical and virtual communities that are relevant to the organization.

We also included a range of advanced topics courses that will help you develop more specialized skills in areas, such as PR writing and social media, media relations, corporate social responsibility and crisis communication.
