CAMPAIGNS: STRATEGIES, ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
Credit points: 15
A public relations campaign consists of a series of activities which are planned in advance for a specific goal. These activities seek to change beliefs, attitudes and behaviours. This class will examine how contemporary campaigns are designed to meet their goals. We will learn about how campaigns are developed and implemented through an analysis of social context, goal setting, framework, timelines, executable tactics and evaluation. We will be engaged in the development of a simulated campaign.
