This unit presents a broad overview of public relations from the history of the profession, contemporary practice and future considerations. Various theoretical concepts are examined to gain an understanding of how public relations has evolved over time and how this can influence forms of communication.

The public relations process is examined in stages from research and planning to implementation and evaluation. There is a strong emphasis on professional codes and ensuring ethical considerations underpin communication tools and techniques used.
