CU-Boulder could be offering you a whole new crop of talent, with a proposal to create a new college that would include a degree track in public relations, which isn’t currently offered by the university. College planners hope that you will read the full proposal for the College of Media, Communication and Information, and the Department of Advertising, Public Relations and Media Design (APRD), at our website, http://www.colorado.edu/cmci/
The new college would include seven departments and programs in all, including a department of Information Science. That means a PR student, for instance, could readily take classes from top experts in that field to learn the latest in workplace technology. The students could also work with journalism professors and students to understand PR needs from “the other side” and with documentarians on advanced techniques for production of videos and other visuals.
This proposal requires approval by the university’s Board of Regents and is expected to go to them soon. In the meantime, though, please take the opportunity to post your comments and questions to the website, http://www.colorado.edu/cmci/ — they may help shape the final proposal.
