PRNEWS Announces 2024 Education A-List Honorees

PRNEWS has announced its 2024 Education A-List, the PR industry’s comprehensive roster of the best higher learning institutions. The 20 winners on this year’s list, hailing from across U.S., combine hybrid and remote programs, offer new degree specializations, secure students with multiple internship opportunities and provide access to top professionals working within the industry.

To compile the list, members of our editorial staff examined factors such as curricula, diversity, faculty composition, academic awards and coursework. We also considered off-campus offerings, such as internships, and how the schools' coursework reflected the continued evolution of the communication field.

“The Education A-List is the only editorial roster of its kind, dedicated to the most innovative higher learning institutions for PR & communications." says Kaylee Hultgren, Content Director for PRNEWS. “This year’s esteemed list supports our view that PR and communications programs provide additional, high-quality training for professionals in the industry. Moreover, their continued evolution—through both a content and technological perspective—keeps apace with the real-world companies, organizations and new trends and specialties that are driving the industry forward.”

In addition to focusing on what sets each school apart, each write-up offers information on flexible course options, types of degrees and course specializations.

Congratulations to all of the institutions named to the 2024 Education A-List. Read the full profiles here.
