Newhouse School public relations program recognized by PRNews

For the third year in a row, the Newhouse School’s public relations program has been named to the PRNews Education A-List, which recognizes the top PR programs in the U.S.

“The public relations program at Newhouse has a reputation for excellence, so I am not surprised by this honor,” says Newhouse School dean Mark J. Lodato. “Thanks to an innovative curriculum, stellar faculty and incredible hands-on opportunities, our PR students get the best possible education and training and are ready for career success as soon as they graduate.”

Newhouse offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in public relations, as well as a master’s degree in public diplomacy and global communications, which combines public relations and international relations coursework in partnership with the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. Additionally, Newhouse offers an online master’s of communications with a specialization in public relations.

PRNews made note of the school’s recently revamped curriculum, which includes graduate and undergraduate courses in social media and society, social media and innovation and diversity in public relations. The curriculum emphasizes writing for digital media, incorporating technological advances in client-based PR research and campaigns, leadership skills and DEI standards, resources and best practices.

Newhouse is home to a student-run public relations firm, Hill Communications, which provides students with opportunities to take leadership roles and work with real-world clients. Students also have the option to study abroad or in major cities through Newhouse’s programs in New York City, Washington and Los Angeles.
