Public Relations: Public Relations at Lee University

Created for students pursuing a major or minor in public relations.

Public Relations at Lee University

The B.A. and B.S. in Public Relations are designed to train students interested in professional or academic work in the area of corporate, nonprofit or agency public relations. The courses in the major provide students with the tools and tactics necessary to fulfill their calling as public relations professionals who think critically and creatively with a biblical worldview. In Fall 2011, the public relations program earned international accreditation from the Public Relations Society of America, receiving a Certification in Education for Public Relations (CEPR). Lee became the first Christian University to receive this certification. Approximately 40 schools internationally have been awarded CEPR. - Lee University

Lee University Public Relations

Public Relations

The purpose of this subject guide is to help students identify and locate helpful resources in their field of study, whether those resources be for academic research or personal inquiry.  Most students recognize that the library has research materials and resources, but many students don’t realize just how much information is available through the library or they don’t know exactly how to go about finding those resources (Wallis 53).  Also, studies have shown that students want more than just lists of potential resources; students want to know how to search for the resources they need (Sinkinson 74).  This guides seeks to provide a little bit of both. You will find example resources listed, and most pages then provide instructions and ideas for how to search the libraries resources.  Also, on this home page, you will see a box for frequently asked questions. We know you’re busy, so type in your question here and you may find that someone else has already asked it (Dobbs 175-176). If you don’t’ find the answer to question on this subject guide, feel free to contact the library.  We are here to serve you in your academic and research endeavors!
