Advertising majors at Seaver College study a variety of subjects including creative copywriting, multimedia design, digital and non-digital media planning and buying, consumer behavior research, advertising strategy, campaign development, digital strategy, digital analytics, and managerial techniques. Our unique major is only one of a few universities nationwide offering an extensive program in advertising.
Advertising is a key form of marketing communication, as it is one of the most important ways companies and organizations inform the public about a product, brand, service, and idea and promote them strategically. Our advertising majors learn about product, service, and idea advertising; supporting nonprofit organizations, and making high-stakes marketing decisions.
