College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Public Relations

Public relations is one of the fastest growing career fields in the United States. The U.S. Bureau of Labor reports that employment in public relations is expected to grow 23 percent by 2020. Public relations is also among the highest paying careers within the field of communications. The growth in public relations is fostered by the need for organizations to maintain public image in a rapidly changing digital age. Iowa State’s public relations major includes a rigorous internship program which places students into internship positions all over the country, and an award-winning chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) which offers students an opportunity to practice public relations through various competitions and service projects.
