Learning Public Relations

By: Caitlin Burnham

I might be in my junior year of college, but I’m just getting my first taste of public relations. I’ve been studying journalism for the past two-and-a-half years, but when I had a mini life crisis last semester I found myself signing up for COMM 370 Public Relations and ready to explore a new venue of the communications field.  Most of the stuff I’ve learned so far has been pretty basic but interesting.  I’m learning to look at communications from a different vantage point.  Instead of trying to get the story I’m learning how to tell it. Instead of asking the questions I’m preparing myself to answer them.  I’m not sure where I’ll end up, or if I’ll even decide to pursue a career in communications, but as I continue to learn and explore different things I will decide what the best fit is for me.
