The Advertising minor, offered jointly by the Annenberg School of Journalism and the Marshall School of Business, is designed for students interested in building a career in or developing a better understanding of the field of advertising. It explores the key role played by advertising in today’s global economy. At no time has advertising been more successful or more controversial than it is today, and this program will explore both the positives and negatives. Emphasis is placed throughout the program on both the practical skills required to meet the demands of the marketplace and the theoretical underpinnings of those practices.
The Advertising minor consists of 24 units and requires a minimum of three semesters to complete. Students are admitted to the advertising minor each term on a space-available basis.
