Advertising Major

Code: MAAAIZ

Advertising is a discipline which combines art, science, business and communication strategy with potential career paths far wider than simply in an advertising agency.

This major includes elements of production, marketing, public relations, visual arts, communications research and interactive multimedia, to develop and showcase the strengths of individual students and addresses advertising as a communication specialism, rather than as a sub-section of a marketing plan.
