For students interested in public relations as a career, Public Relations Practice provides them with an opportunity to practice a variety of public relations services for non-profit organizations as well as publicizing university events.  Students in this class have provided crisis planning services, set up social media sites, worked on websites, and organized events.

The class is taught by Gladys McKie who has more than 25 years of public relations experience.  She is the adviser for NUPRSA, the Northeastern University student chapter of the Public Relations Society of America.
