A public relations major is a branch of communications studies. PR majors learn how to issue statements and press releases to the public, sometimes by using social media, and how to work with journalists to answer questions of public interest.
The public relations minor emphasizes skills and professional knowledge for students who are pursuing majors in other academic areas. This minor would be appropriate for students who have a strong interest in public relations but wish to graduate with a major in another field. This minor would work well for those majoring in Business Administration.
