Advertising & Public Relations
Studying advertising and public relations means more than just selling a product, it's about making a difference and communicating with purpose. It offers opportunities to be a storyteller, a graphic creator, a social media innovator and everything in between. You'll be working with real brands and clients, getting a taste of one of the fastest growing industries in the world, placing you strides ahead of the competition. You'll gain skills in creative problem-solving, critical thinking, strategic writing and decision-making in any area of emphasis. You can customize your major by focusing on one of five areas:
