3 Questions Students May Have About Public Relations:

I have only been studying public relations for a little over a year and a half now.  I know students will have questions like I did when I was deciding what I wanted to do.  I hope these questions and answers help you!

1) Do you have to be as skilled as a professional writer to have a degree in public relations?

No!  You do not need to be an amazing writer when you start studying this degree because you definitely will improve fast.  I am in several writing classes and I have already noticed a tremendous change in my writing.

2) Do you need an internship right away?

No, most college students do not start looking into getting an internship until their junior year.  It is not something you should stress about in the beginning.  Take your time, focus on school, and you will do just fine.  There are so many job opportunities in the public relations industry that you will have no problem.

3)  Do you have to be skilled with all technology if you want to pursue a degree in public relations?

No, you do not need to be an expert in all areas of technology to pursue a degree in this field.  I have never been very technologically advanced in many areas, but I am in a couple technology classes now and have learned a lot.  I am currently learning a lot about Photoshop and Indesign.  Believe me you will learn if you want to learn!
