Media Relations Specialists
While your overall schedule should be college preparatory, there
are a number of classes you should emphasize during your high
school career. Naturally, English and communication classes, such
as speech or debate, should be a top priority as they will help you
hone your communication skills. Also, take computer classes and
other classes that emphasize working with different media, such as
radio or television broadcasting classes, digital media, and
journalism classes. Courses in mathematics, economics, and business
will help you develop the skills you will need to work with budgets
and project planning. If your high school offers advertising or
marketing classes, be sure to take those. Finally, since a media
relations specialist is involved with current events, take any
history or social studies class that emphasizes this subject. Such
a class will give you the opportunity to observe how current events
are related to the public through different media and the
influences these media can have.
