The public relations and strategic communication program at UCM develops professionals who take a public-focused approach to results-driven strategic communication. The University of Central Missouri program is just the 38th program in the world to achieve CEPR certification - "the global standard in public relations education."
Anyone can join our high impact traditional program (4-year or 2-year with the transfer of an AA) at the Warrensburg campus. Students with significant college credit wanting to finish their degree can join our online degree completion program through Extended Studies. Students can choose a fall, spring or summer start time.
