The MA in Journalism and Public Relations is recognised by the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and the Public Relations Institute of Ireland (PRII).
The curriculum is structured to increase the employability of students and promote professional development in the communications sector. The course is conducted on both a full and part-time basis over a 1-2 year period. Learners will acquire the skills to conceive, produce and edit their own media and public relations content on all platforms including web, social, radio, print and mobile video. Public Relations students will develop a critical understanding of the theory and practice of public relations, political communications and of the strategic role that communications play in the management of organisations. The programme has been designed in response to industry demands for well-rounded multi-skilled communications graduates.
