Students enrolled in the Master of Arts in Public Relations and Advertising (PRAD) program at DePaul University reap many benefits from the university's ideal location; some of the nation's largest public relations firms and advertising agencies are based in Chicago, just minutes from DePaul classrooms. Students have plentiful opportunities to complete internships for credit with local organizations and/or network with industry professionals while studying for their degrees.
With an integrated framework — one that unifies communications and marketing — this program provides the knowledge and practical skills to work successfully as a professionally competent, socially responsible and globally conscious practitioner. Classes emphasize the principles of strategy, relationship management, critical thinking, ethics, and creativity in public relations and advertising.
