Public Relations major is going strong. Some students have said to me that they’ve heard the PR major is being phased out. This is simply NOT TRUE. We currently have 125 PR majors (admitted and pre-admitted), and this number is similar to previous years when we’ve ranged between 125 and 150 students. We are offering all our regular public relations courses and plan to continue. What you may see a change in is the number of sections for popular courses. We are offering only one section of COM 379 and 439 section each due to staffing levels and the new required course minimums. So, if you hear someone say that the PR major is going away, do your part to dispel this myth and say it’s still a great option.
CONSIDER A NEW MAJOR: Health and Organizational Communication majors gaining numbers. A number of years ago we starting offering a major track in health communication, while organizational communication has been a major for over 15 years. As a result of two excellent faculty hires, Drs. Heather Carmack and Stephanie Norander, these two programs are seeing an increase in student demand and interest. Both majors offer excellent employment opportunities, not only in this region, but across the state of Missouri and beyond. We are also offering special topics courses in each area more regularly as a result.
