Course Description

The programme is a double major degree with a dual award from SEGi and the University of Central Lancashire that aims to produce quality public relations practitioners with a sound command of the English language for government, corporate, and non-profit organisations.

The Public Relations major arms students with knowledge of strategies and practices of successful public relations campaigns, and provides them with opportunities to use their knowledge of the literary and linguistics features of the English language to craft a range of public relations speeches and writings.
