Advertising helps students prepare for positions in advertising agencies and departments, media buying or sales, and advertising production, design, or creative.

Although students in advertising are primarily oriented toward either the creative or management side of the business, they essentially take the same courses in advertising. One minor is required.

Students should check the prerequisites for each course.
