This programme captures the spirit of advertising in traditional and digital forms, examining the increasingly important and dynamic role that marketing communications plays within an organisation. In the world of branded content and consumer power, we recognise the role of advertising is constantly changing, due technological advances.
This course takes a practical position on the application of advertising, with a heavy emphasis on experiences, such as the planning and execution of real projects.
Communication today is much more of a two-way or even three-way process and organisations must stimulate and respond to their customers instead of just persuading them to buy their brand. This course takes a practical position on the application of advertising, with a heavy emphasis on experiences – such as the planning and execution of real projects.
We provide you with opportunities to visit companies locally and in the USA allowing you to meet professionals working in the sector.
Advertising as a joint honours subject is most commonly taken with Marketing or Multimedia Journalism although many other combinations are available.
Methods of Learning
If you are taking this Joint Honours course you can expect taught study to be a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops and usually six hours per week. We recommend that you spend 12 hours per week in self-directed study time.
A variety of individual and group-based assessments are used including reports, presentations, posters, e-portfolios, projects, client briefs, multiple-choice tests and examinations.
