Hastings College Advertising & Public Relations faculty push you to think broadly, flexibly, persuasively and creatively in a field where the basics are timeless but the ethical challenges and opportunities for innovation are boundless.
Individual and team projects help develop high-level skills across a broad range of key areas, from brainstorming creative concepts to testing messages with research to planning initiatives in a world with countless traditional media, social media and opportunities to affect word-of-mouth. It’s a thrilling marketplace, where corporations and non-profits need expertise and guidance, and agencies need promising talent to best serve clients.
Building experience on campus through your involvement in HCMediaOnline, the student-run radio station KFKX, HCTV, The Collegian newspaper, the Bronco yearbook and other student organizations put your classroom lessons to the test. On- and off-campus internships further advance your experiences and know-how while building your portfolio and professional network.
