Many strategic communication classes are small so that full-time professors can help students work on projects for real clients. Students are strongly encouraged to put their skills into practice by interning for local agencies, companies or nonprofits.
Strategic Communication also provides opportunities to students with our on campus organizations Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and Ad Association.
Our on-campus chapter of PRSSA provides an opportunity to network with speakers and visit agencies in the DFW area. Ad Association connect students to one another and provides resources for students to prepare them for graduation and beyond.
Additionally, students compete annually in national advertising and public relations campaigns competitions. In recent years, students have placed in the top 10 nationally ranked teams in the American Advertising Federations (AAF) National Student Advertising competition, the Public Relations Student Society of America Bateman Competition and the Texas Public Relations Association’s annual competition.
