Public Relations (AAS)
The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Public Relations program provides students with general, practical, and marketable skills that will enable them to seek entry-level employment in public relations, such as press relations, community or consumer relations, market research, in-house publications, political campaigns, fund raising and volunteer recruitment. The program includes development of a portfolio that will exhibit students’ ability to write both news and feature stories, to develop and plan events, and to produce brochures, advertisements, or small publications with desktop publishing. The curriculum combines coursework in public relations with a General Education component.
You must earn a grade of C or better for all courses required within the program.
You must complete 3 credits of Restricted Electives (RE). Courses used to satisfy other required areas may not be used to complete this program requirement. Some RE courses may have prerequisites/corequisites that are not included in the total program credits. If you are interested in taking courses with additional requisites you will need to adjust your academic plan to include these courses OR obtain permission from your instructor to waive these requirements.
If you are transferring to a state university, you should select general education requirement courses with designation values.
