Advertising Major

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.

Study Tour Option

The Advertising Major offers a unique annual international Study Tour where students visit a selection of industry workplaces including advertising agencies, publishers, media shops and clients.

Attendance requirements

Students are enrolled in CMM3116 Current Industry Analysis which details requirements.
