Want to know the best majors for a career in public relations?

Here's a hint.  It's not a bachelor's degree in journalism, communications, or even PR itself.  

According to, the best undergraduate degrees for a PR career are business, English (both are no-brainers here, especially since both require strong marketing and communications skills), performing arts (such as theater), and even computer science (after all, technology constantly changes every day, it seems).

If that wasn't enough, it seems like Yahoo! has been on to something of late, at least as far as "hot careers" are concerned.  It appears that every time you visit the Education page on Yahoo!, public relations specialist or communications shows up on pages such as "Jobs That Aren't Going Away",  "Booming Online Degrees to Switch Fields", and even"Careers for Math-Haters",  just to name a few.

Still, no matter what degree you choose to pursue, learning the proper skills needed to succeed in public relations and other communications-related fields is always worth the time, money, and most importantly, the investment.
