Major In Advertising
More than just a commercial, billboard or sub-section of a marketing plan, advertising is a business that combines art, science, communication and strategy.
Here you will learn about advertising management, integrated marketing communications, creative strategy and apply more than a little strategic branding along the way.
This major is accredited by the International Advertising Association (IAA) and is therefore recognised internationally.

This unitset structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.
Advertising is a discipline which combines art, science, strategy and communications practice. It has potential applications far wider than simply employment in an advertising agency. Advertising focuses on "controlled communications", where the content and the delivery-mode are both paid for by the client. The degree can include elements of production, marketing, public relations, visual arts, communications research and interactive multi-media to develop and showcase the strengths of individual students. Advertising is a critical component of integrated marketing communications in a business environment where it is communications (rather than accountancy) which has become the cornerstone of many successful corporate careers.
Edith Cowan University's advertising degree is accredited by the International Advertising Association (IAA) and addresses advertising as a communication specialism, rather than as a sub-section of a marketing plan.
