September 23, 2018

Would you like to make $67,000* a year? Would you like the flexibility of working from home? Would you like to be the voice of an organization?

Then a career in Public Relations might be the perfect job for you!

Concordia University Texas knows exactly how to prepare you for this job, and it can all be done at your fingertips.

No longer do you have to worry about fighting traffic to get to night classes or wonder where you have to enroll to get certain credits—the Concordia University Texas Public Relations degree can be completed fully online and we have advisors who will walk you through every step of the way.

Speaking of advisors—I am one of them. A unique feature of enrolling at this small university is the hands-on instruction you will get from your professors both in and out of the classroom. While I may be an Associate Professor and Department Chair of the Communication Program, I am also just a gal with information who wants to get to know her students.

I think one of the most challenging aspects of fully-online college programs is feeling like you have a connection to the university. Feeling like you are more than your typed words. Feeling like you are known, you matter, you have a mentor. Here at Concordia, professors can be mentors. Department Chairs can be advisors. And students can be known.

Because Concordia University Texas is an established brick-and-mortar university, you can be confident your online degree has value. You are welcome on campus anytime to meet your professors, talk with financial aid officers or just enjoy the beautiful scenery.

I invite you to come to my office anytime! I can give you more information about the program; you can give me more information about you.

So what can you expect from the Public Relations curriculum? Exciting and relevant courses such as Writing for the Media and Public Relations, Digital Journalism and New Media Communication, Integrated Marketing Communication and Persuasive Communication.

These courses will prepare you for the exploding career options in the field of public relations—from Social Media Specialist to Director of Development to Community Relations Manager. Graduates of this program leave with superior writing skills, an advanced awareness of how to create content for all types of media outlets and are highly trained on how to best deliver messages to target audiences.

All Concordia University Texas’ online programs are year round, and each course is eight weeks long. What does this mean for you? You can start at any time. Interested in getting more information? Glad you asked. Reach out to me and I will connect with you:
