Public relations is a dynamic profession that helps serve and enhance the bottom line of any organization. Just as financial planning is critical to the operation and success of an organization, so too is communications planning.

MacEwan’s Public Relations career diploma program is a unique opportunity for those with previous post-secondary education to ready themselves for an exciting new career in communications in less than a year. It is unique because your previous post-secondary education (minimum 30 credits) can be applied to this program – meaning you’ll fast track your way to this highly reputable diploma.

More than 90 per cent of program graduates become gainfully employed in the public relations field within one year. The reason for the program’s success is simple: its focus on training students to be functional entry-level practitioners the minute they leave the program.
