 Brent King (Brent's picture for displayProfessor Emeritus)

  BSc, BJ (Carleton), MBA (Dalhousie)   
  With a degree in journalism and an MBA, Brent King, 
  associate professor, brought an excellent  blend of 
  academic and practical experience to his teaching in the  
  public relations degree. 

  He taught primarily in the public relations writing sequence where he developed innovative assignments with community clients that have enabled public relations students to develop strong portfolios before they graduate. 

A keen supporter of co-operative education, Prof. King was a faculty co-op advisor for a number of years and published research into co-operative education.  He was instrumental in establishing the Mount's participation in the Queenstown Education Development Science Writing Workshop where every fall he took a group of public relations students to a professional development workshop where they worked with young scientists and journalism students to develop skills in presenting science to lay publics. 

Prof. King's research interests included the complementary (and conflicting) roles of public relations practitioners and journalists when communicating about controversial issues.  He was a faculty member of a cross-discipline team that developed and taught a first-year foundation course, UNIV 1101.  Prof. King was the Mount's 2005 recipient of the Instructional Leadership Award. 

Brent retired from Mount Saint Vincent University in December 2013.
