As the environment has the potential to affect the social systems in every respect, the organizations, as social systems, should establish and maintain organic bonds with the environment they are involved in. Social systems, constituted in order to achieve some specific goals, are obliged to gather all the inputs they need from the environment and deliver all the outputs they produced to their environment and make them demanded. Such kind of an obligation makes the studies in the field of Public Relations and Advertising obligatory. The department has been established with the purpose of providing the human source that will be able to plan and carry out these studies at every level.
