Historically named the first communication program in the United States, Emerson’s Public Relations (MA) will teach you to analyze, communicate with, and gain meaningful insight into communities, cultures, institutions, and lifestyles, while supporting your audience’s beliefs and values.

Gain real-world experience by conducting public opinion polls and organizational social media audits, formulating crisis communication plans, writing speeches, and creating digital content. By investigating the ways in which different types of messaging can engage and persuade, you will leave the program with the skill set and strategic insight required to be a compelling advocate for better business practices, improved policies, and social justices.
