Public Relations

The public relations major at Anderson University includes courses in public relations principles, writing, case studies, design, and digital photography.

Students work with Fifth Street Communications, the department's public relations agency, which serves the needs of local nonprofit organizations while providing students with opportunities for hands-on, portfolio-quality work. Under the guidance of knowledgeable faculty, student account executives lead teams that assist nonprofits with strategic planning, copywriting, media relations, and event planning.
