London, England (COMM 278)
Faculty Led Summer Program
COMM 278 International Public Relations
This intensive two-week course explores how public relations is defined and practiced in an era of globalization. As more companies become multinational and as public issues grow worldwide in focus, communication professionals work in an increasingly interconnected world. Students will learn how to navigate this new landscape through intensive classes, discussion of real-world cases, guest speakers and field trips to communication agencies, corporations, cultural institutions and nonprofit organizations. The course will help prepare students for careers in public relations and advertising, communication, marketing, business, global and international studies and related fields.
London is the perfect setting for the course because it is home to the European headquarters of one third of the world’s largest companies and an international public relations hub. It’s an excellent place to study the roles of international public relations in supporting global brands, raising awareness of worldwide issues, managing crises and burnishing organizational reputations.
