“After graduating from university, I felt unsure of what direction to take, and a lack of confidence in my practical skills. I attended the Spring Open House for CC&PR and right away knew this program would be a great fit. Once gaining a wide variety of applicable skills, I felt ready to compete in a tough and daunting job market. I was hired in my field before graduating and continue to thank this program for my continued career success.”

“The Corporate Communications & Public Relations Program at Fanshawe did so much more than prepare me for the professional world. Not only did I graduate from the CCPR program knowing I had the skills necessary to be successful, I also left with a network of and professionals that I still reach out to for support and advice.
The program offered the perfect combination between education and application through their internship program. My internship with the London Knights allowed me to hone my skills of building community relationships, which successfully prepared me for working in the not for profit sector.
"If you’re looking for a program that has great teachers, intelligent peers, and will prepare you for the workforce, this is the program for you.”

“The PR-CC postgraduate program allowed me to sharpen the skills I already had while exploring new abilities, providing a well-rounded and balanced experience. I was fortunate to secure employment prior to graduating due to the incredible placement component of the program. I have since moved into a position at a new company which allows me to live each day on my own schedule while servicing clients in Canada and the United States, using a combination of all that I learned from the dedicated faculty. The PR-CC program changed my life, and I hope you let it change yours.”
