About the course

This course is designed to teach you how to THINK like public relations professional. To do so, you will need to understand the importance of research and the critical step in developing a public relations initiative: identifying and understanding your target audience. Once you have identified the public(s) you are trying to reach with your message, you can begin to build your public relations campaign.

Course content is designed to enable students to better identify the specific audiences they seek to reach, the characteristics of each audience, the tactics that are best suited to reach the audience and how various media (print and broadcast, trade and consumer, local and national, blogosphere, Twitter, Facebook, among others) can be used to reach them.
