Course content

The MA Public Relations explores the role of PR counsel in both commercial and not-for-profit organisations in an international context. It offers an opportunity to critically assess the contemporary theories, issues and practice of corporate communications and public relations.

This degree recognises the rapid changes in the international communications environment and allows you to become confident in your understanding and application of today's essential multiplatform communication channels. You will research and critique developments in PR practice with a strong emphasis on an ethical approach to organisational storytelling in the post-Leveson era.

Teaching and learning will be driven by your own specialist fields of interest and delivered by experienced practitioners and academics. Leading authorities in areas such as social media will contribute to the curriculum to ensure the programme is at the cutting-edge of practice.

Modules will cover crucial aspects of communications law, developments in social media, integrated multiplatform communications and global communications.
