Advertising program structure

Advertising can be studied at various undergraduate and graduate levels, from associate degrees to doctoral qualifications.

A two-year associate degree will give students an introduction to the field and prepare them for entry-level employment or further study. A bachelor’s degree usually takes three or four years to complete and provides students with a comprehensive understanding of advertising.

If you want to begin your career in management or academia, you’ll probably need to complete a postgraduate qualification with a narrower focus. An MA usually takes one or two years to finish, whilst a PhD takes around five years of study.

Most advertising programs are taught through a mixture of lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials, and visits to industry experts. You’ll likely be assessed through a combination of written exams, essays, reports, presentations, team projects, and creative portfolios.

Although every advertising program will be slightly different, most programs share similar modules, including:

  • Introduction to advertising
  • Advertising and promotion
  • Campaign planning
  • Brand management
  • Direct and digital marketing
  • Consumer behavior
  • Marketing research insights
  • Contemporary issues in advertising
