Prerequisites:*

These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.

  •  Grade12 English 

Applicants must have an English 12 with a minimum grade of B (or equivalent), or a transferable undergraduate level English course with a minimum grade of C. Note: A lack of basic writing skills or word processing computer skills will hold the student back, so applicants are urged to upgrade this area before starting the program. Successful applicants will be invited to attend an orientation session sometime in May. The purpose of this session is to provide an opportunity to meet faculty, ask questions about the program, and to explore what the program entails. Arrangements will be made to accommodate out-of-town applicants.

Additional Admission Requirements:
    Students accepted into the Public Relations program must have a high level of communication skills, both written and verbal. Depending on their background, advanced standing can be granted for work done or skills learned elsewhere. Perhaps more than any other skill, good writing is critical to the success of public relations professionals. We are looking for students who have a natural flair for writing and a good command of English grammar.
