This is an advanced course in the use of the digital and Web-based tools for the public relations practitioner.

Students will review state-of-the-art programs and platforms, building on the information learned in the required course and expanding to include desktop design tools, video production, search engine optimization, website content management systems, and data visualization. Instruction in the use of WordPress and Adobe InDesign and Photoshop will be provided.
