CPRS Recognized post-secondary education programs
In 2011, CPRS launched Pathways to the Profession™: An Outcomes Based Approach Towards Excellence in Canadian Public Relations and Communications Management Education, a recognition program for PR and CM education programs offered through Canadian colleges and universities.
Seeking recognition is a voluntary process for Canadian institutes. It provides a signal to the industry, potential employers, current and future students, and to the institutes, that an educational program offers sound preparation in public relations and communications management.
Who is eligible to be recognized under the Pathways program? If you are a recognized Canadian post-secondary institution* that meets the definition, and are delivering Public Relations and/or Communications programs, you will want to consider applying for recognition.
*Recognized Canadian Post-secondary Institution – For these purposes, defined as a Public or private institution that has been given authority to grant degrees, diplomas, and other credentials by a public or private act of the provincial/territorial legislature or through a government-mandated quality assurance mechanism.
