Students may focus on only one or a mix of these three areas. The Minor in Advertising and Public Relations introduces students from any major to the profession and practice of advertising and public relations. Students will acquire basic competencies and skills that help them discern the role of communication in society and understand the main concepts, methods, and approaches used in the advertising and public relations professions.
