SFU’s nine-week Public Relations Certificate will set you apart in the job market with current, hands-on PR training from Vancouver’s industry experts.
Spend six weeks studying PR fundamentals, media relations, social networking, crisis communications, public speaking, business, writing and more. Then put it all into practice in a three-week practicum, contributing to real-world PR campaigns and materials.
Our curriculum follows the Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) Code of Professional Standards. The program may be ideal for you if you already have some post-secondary education and/or work experience, enjoy working with people, write well and love a challenge.
- Upcoming program: May 4–July 2, 2021
- Location update: Due to the COVID-19 situation, the next program offering will move to online-supported remote delivery. Instead of attending classes in person, you’ll learn through an interactive videoconference platform, participating in live sessions with instructors, live discussions with classmates and group work. You’ll also engage in readings, in-class exercises, case studies, individual and group assignments, and other learning activities.
