Public Relations continues to evolve as consumers/stakeholders increasingly take control on instantly accessible worldwide communication channels, and organisations rely less and less on newspapers and traditional media to disseminate information.

Influenced by the fast-paced world in which we live, public relations (PR) is rapidly evolving through the use of emerging social communication media and technology. This specialist Masters course is designed to give practitioners the skills and ability to think creatively and adopt the latest tools in modern marketing campaigns.

A key feature of modern marketing is the decline of mass communication in favour of multiple person-to-person networks and mobile messenger apps such as WhatsApp. Sitting alongside traditional PR tools, social networks and blog sites are now part of the PR practitioner’s toolkit. This course will expose you to the challenges at the forefront of modern PR and enhance your ability to manage brand and corporate identity effectively.

You will explore the radical shift in PR, as traditional channels such as advertising and sales promotion have changed. The course will further develop your understanding of word-of-mouth marketing, including social networks and the growing popularity of photo and video sharing sites. From Facebook and Twitter to YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram, you will challenge traditional methods and the contemporary thinking associated with marketing and stakeholder communications. The course will also cover the importance of brand reputation and the growing demand for essential skills in crisis management, and enhance your knowledge and understanding of the role PR plays in modern politics.
