About this Program

PROPOSED PROGRAM CATALOG DESCRIPTION:
The major in Integrated Advertising and Public Relations balances the breadth of the liberal arts and sciences curriculum with the depth of a professional curriculum in both advertising and public relations, along with a choice of unrestricted electives to provide a well-rounded educational experience. Majors must complete 120 credits with a minimum of 40 credits at the 300-400 levels. Majors will complete a minimum of 42 credits in the Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum, 69 credits in the integrated advertising and public relations program, and the remaining credits will be available as unrestricted electives. Internships, while not formally required, are strongly encouraged to gain additional insight into the advertising and public relations professions.

The goal of the integrated advertising and public relations curriculum is to prepare a graduate for a career in the advertising and public relations professions. Transfer and Tri-College University credits applied to the major must be approved in writing using MSUM&�s Course Substitution document, appear in an articulated agreement between MSUM and another university, or appear in the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum.
