Recognized as one of the top advertising and digital branding programs in the country, the advertising major in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications helps students to become “big thinkers” and future advertising leaders. The curriculum provides an interdisciplinary approach to learning, introducing students to both theory and practice through project-based experiences using real clients. Besides taking core courses in advertising and communications, students are encouraged to use their electives to develop an emphasis within their major with the help of their advisors.

This major requires 31-37 credits in communications, depending upon the nature of the three electives which students choose to develop their advertising emphasis.
