The Public Relations and Corporate Communication course at University of Wolverhampton will focus on the design and planning of organisational change campaigns, corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes and rhetorical and non-rhetorical responses and tactics to tackle issues and crises. Students will be equipped with the tools and skills needed to address different stakeholders and to approach any challenge from a strategic perspective.
Also the course programme is taught by professionals with extensive experience in different areas of the industry and its content has been recognised by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR). This certifies that our students will have the opportunity to learn up to date techniques that are relevant to the current workplace, whether their prospective or current posts involve practicing at a local, national or an international level.
There are two distinct areas of practice: in-house, working for an organisation, or working at an agency, where you will be advising a range of clients.
Public relations practitioners are responsible for: internal communications, media relations, public affairs/lobbying, community relations, corporate social responsibility, investor relations or financial public relations. They also manage issues, crisis and business-to-business relations.
Graduates may go on to assist human resources departments, activist organisations or public sector institutions with social change/social marketing campaigns.
