Advancing the Profession and the Future Professional
Founded in 1967, the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is the foremost organization for students interested in public relations and communications. We advocate rigorous academic standards for public relations education, the highest ethical principles and diversity in the profession.
Who We Are
PRSSA is made up of nearly 9,000 students and advisers organized into 300 plus Chapters in the United States, Argentina, Colombia and Peru. We are headquartered in New York City, and led by a National Committee of PRSSA and PRSA members. We have a rich history of support from our parent organization, the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), which offers professional development, networking opportunities and news.
PRSSA can help you gain the experience and practical knowledge employers are seeking. We offer internship listings, competitions, scholarships, awards and leadership opportunities. In addition, PRSSA provides publications, news and social media to keep you updated on industry trends.
PRSSA can connect you to a network of peers and professionals who will become lifelong friends and mentors. We can facilitate the development of valuable relationships with future colleagues through PRSSA National and regional events, PRSSA Chapters and social media. We also provide the opportunity to meet current professionals through your PRSA sponsor Chapter, the Champions for PRSSA or by searching the PRSA member directory.
As a PRSSA member, you can use the PRSA Jobcenter and PRSSA Internship Center to find public relations employment opportunities all over the world. You also may join PRSA for just $60 a year as an Associate Member when you graduate, connecting you to 110 Chapters, 16 Professional Interest Sections and industry resources.
