Major Requirements


From the first public relations course to walking across the stage at graduation, it is a hands-on experience at Loras. Every class combines traditional and experiential learning. 

In COM 201: Principles of Public Relations, students create their own non-profit organization and plan an entire fundraising event for the organization’s cause. From the venue to the party favors, YOU plan it all just as a PR professional would. In COM 190: Communication Theory, students examine the theoretical foundations in which Public Relations is grounded. COM 351: Advanced PR Writing challenges students to explore and create digital and social media messages through the public relations lense. This teaches students content strategy to create a professional presence for a client.  

The hands-on experience a Loras Public Relations student gains in just four years in their classes is a proven formula to turn a college student in to a professional in the workforce.
