Overview

Graduate Certificate - Public Relations – Corporate Communications

Can corporate communications be considered an art form? That's how Sheridan approaches the subject. 

It's a unique approach among business communications programs, and it produces student work that stands out. 

The courses in this program feature hands-on, project-based assignments. 

You'll be working for real-world clients, not just doing classroom exercises.

It takes less than a year to earn a Public Relations – Corporate Communications graduate certificate from Sheridan. 

You'll build a portfolio, get real-world experience and master both practical and theoretical aspects of business communications. 

You'll spend the last five weeks of the program in onsite job placement, working with professionals.

Sheridan emphasizes the critical, analytical and strategic skills prized by employers in corporate communications and public relations and weaves social media and diversity communications into all aspects of tactical delivery. 

You'll do more than write catchy prose; you'll learn how to generate buzz, influence attitudes and motivate behaviour.

Sheridan students have taken top honours in the Canadian Public Relations Society's (Hamilton Chapter) Pinnacle Awards for excellence in Public Relations.
