Course content

Housed within the Liverpool Business School, this MSc in Public Relations is designed for creative communicators, and is delivered by academics with relevant experience of working in the industry.

  • Course available to study full time (1 year) and part time (2 years)
  • Enhanced career and promotion prospects
  • Taught by expert staff with experience of working in PR and the event management industry
Public Relations practice is relevant in every type of organisation; from small and medium sized enterprises to multi-national organisations operating in sectors as diverse as ‘not for profit’ to finance and retail.

This new, integrated Masters programme focuses on how stakeholders can be persuaded to change their perceptions of a product or issue through public relations and effective event management. You will gain the skills and knowledge needed to work in the public relations and/or event management sectors, embracing corporate communications, internal communications, and the emerging discipline of online public relations which incorporates search engine optimisation and social media strategy development.

The programme will be delivered by an expert team of academics who have a broad range of practical and teaching experience in this field and are members of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) and the Public Relations Consultants Association (PRCA).

During the validation period, the programme team will be seeking professional accreditation from PRCA and CIPR so that the course's learning outcomes are closely matched to those of the industry’s key professional bodies.
