Aims and objectives

This unit introduces students to the theoretical and practical underpinnings of global public relations (GPR) practice. Students will be continually encouraged to develop their competencies through exposure to best practice in GPR, communication, ethics, research, planning and deployment of cross-border public relations. Learning will be individual and group based on a combination of theory, analysis of case studies and practical application.

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Identify and scope opportunities for global and cross-border public relations
2. Produce and present public relations plans that accommodate suitable measures for challenges, and cultural and ethical considerations    pertinent to international public relations
3. Demonstrate a nascent understanding and willingness for both the unique and boundary spanning qualities of a variety of global public    relations environments
4. Identify key principles in case studies and relate them to practice-related concerns
