Our postgraduate Journalism & PR students were treated to an exclusive audience with none other than Dr Martina Byrne, CEO of PRII

On Tuesday, March 9th, students on the MA and postgraduate diploma in Journalism & Public Relations were given a masterclass from PR expert and CEO of the Public Relations Institute of Ireland (PRII), Dr Martina Byrne. 

Dr Byrne zoomed onto our students' screens live and shared her incomparable insights into the PR industry, the variety of careers within the sector, and gave the students an all-access guide to the institute's recent PR Industry Survey, which was conducted before the COVID-19 pandemic and featured in the Irish Times. 

The MA in Journalism & Public Relations (and embedded postgraduate diploma) was accredited by the PRII in 2020, with Griffith College being one of only five institutions across Ireland awarded an accreditation from the Institute.

All MA and PgDip Journalism & Public Relations students are given free membership to the PRII. If you are interested in learning more about the programme, schedule a one-to-one session with the faculty, or contact admissions for more details. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr Martina Byrne for coming along to meet our students and sharing her top tips for success in PR.
