Public Relations Track

Public Relations students at Creighton prepare for diverse careers in this field including corporate and nonprofit communications, event planning, media relations, employee communications and fundraising through a well-rounded program emphasizing writing, strategic thinking, graphic design, event planning and use of social media. From their first class, they do real work for real clients and develop strong portfolios that help them get internships and jobs. The Public Relations Student Society of America chapter connects PR majors with professionals in Omaha and elsewhere. PR majors gravitate to leadership positions on campus that further prepare them for this field and they find internships in athletics, the arts, education, politics, major businesses and nonprofits that give them strong career experience before they graduate. This track is also an excellent pre-law major because of its emphasis on writing and advocacy.
