Speaking of Iona, the college is starting a master’s degree program in public relations at Rockefeller Center. It starts this fall.
Robert J. Petrausch, chair of mass communication, said this: “Classes will be taught by faculty who bring to the classroom not just their knowledge, but their real-life work histories that include public relations experience at major companies and agencies. The program also draws from leading professionals in the public relations industry as adjunct professors with specialized skills. The curriculum blend the art of public relations with strategic business models, taught by Iona’s award-winning faculty.”
