One of the most rewarding semesters of my undergraduate career came while taking
a Public Relations writing course that challenged me to write promotional materials and media documents for brands and individuals with vastly different goals, values, and audiences. Most of the client work listed below were simulated exercises meant to mimic the experience of a writer in a PR firm, and I learned so much about the role of communication in a fast-paced environment.
While on the Public Relations/Advertising track at the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media, I gained hands-on industry experience with each course. Working with both real and simulated clients, I learned from inspiring instructors and developed into an innovative and mindful professional. To see all relevant coursework, visit my Resume.
Many classes in the Hussman School of Journalism and Media are structured to provide internship-like opportunities that lead to industry-standard work. I've been so lucky to be able to work on several campaigns for local clients, as well as simulated projects that taught me how to analyze trends and identify what good, and bad, PR looks like.
