The signature graduation completion requirement of the DePaul University
MA in Public Relations and Advertising program is the ePortfolio. First
launched as a degree requirement in 2013-2014, the ePortfolio showcases
the academic and professional accomplishments of public relations and
advertising graduate students.
Graduating students showcase their
ePortfolios at the ePortfolio Showcase, an annual event that connects
students and faculty with more than 150 top PR, advertising and
marketing communications professionals in Chicago, including program
alumni. Students network with professionals, who get to vote for the
students’ top ePortfolios. After graduation, students have a creative
and visually appealing material to present their resumes and work
samples to prospective employers.
The links below provide extra
information on each ePortfolio Showcase, including a gallery of student
ePortfolios and photos of the event. The final link features a blog post
from culpwrit.com on the importance of doing an ePortfolio.
