Course DescriptionThis course provides an opportunity for students to examine, evaluate, and apply a variety of ethical decision-making models for public relations practice. Working both individually and in small groups, students will review ethical frameworks and public relations societies standards through the investigation of public relations cases which raise ethical issues. Emphasis will be placed on the application of ethics in the practice of public relations.
NotesThis course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.
Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
