PR major Raquel Gonzales earns PRSA Certificate in Principles of Public Relations

gonzalesWe would like to congratulate PR major Raquel Gonzales for earning a PRSA Certificate in Principles of Public Relations, a new entry-level program that awards a certificate to candidates who pass a professional, knowledge-based, qualifying exam. Texas State University is the only public university in Texas to support this designation, which proves a command of the basic principles in the PR field.

Earning the Certificate gives new graduates like Texas State’s Raquel an advantage in a competitive job market. The inaugural class of eight students participated in the 12-hour prep course during the fall of 2015, and students have up to six months after graduating to take the exam. The Universal Accreditation Board (UAB), a group of eight participating organizations that represent public relations professionals, administers this and other programs to promote lifelong learning.

The largest group within the UAB is the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). The Texas State School of Journalism & Mass Communication sponsors a student chapter of this organization called the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).
