Class profile information below reflects graduates from both the Strategic Public Relations Program and the MA in Public Relations and Advertising. The Strategic Public Relations master’s program was succeeded by the MA in Public Relations and Advertising program in the 2020–21 academic year.

Each year, the office of Career Development performs a placement survey of all USC Annenberg graduates one year after graduation. The placement data that is obtained through the survey is supplemented by data from LinkedIn as well as reports submitted by faculty members, and academic advisors.
