    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it does an amazing job at briefly covering the many aspects of advertising. This class goes over the different positions in the advertising field such as creative, account manager, copywriter, and art director.I took this class as an undecided student and this class made me realize my major and what I want to do in my life. It really does a good job teaching you the basics of the industry and the different things that you can do with a degree in this department.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the examples and the end of the year final project. The examples in this class made me learn that advertising isn't just trying to get people to buy the product you are selling, it is beyond that. Advertising can be used to help people and promote things that people are passionate about. For example, in the class they showed an advertisement about a girl that walked a marathon with a bucket of water on her head promoting clean and more accessible water for Africa. I wanted to have a job that I would not only love but knew could help people and these examples in class made me realize that I could accomplish that through advertising. Another highlight of this course was the end of the year project. This project was a highlight because we were allowed to pick the product that we did the project on and I was very passionate about my project. We had to create a creative brief on this product and I really enjoyed the freedom and being allowed to put what we learned in class into great work. Overall this class taught me the basics of the advertising industry and helped me discover my love for this field.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Advice I would give to students considering this course is to give it a shot. Especially for people that are unsure about their major. This class does a really nice job at introducing this major which is nice for people that are undecided. In addition to that, I would recommend to study for the tests a decent amount. The tests are not difficult as long as you study enough for the exams. There is usually a study guide given that you can make using your notes and as long as you know the study guide you should do fine on the tests. I also recommend going to class because the Professor is very good at lecturing and the classes are very informative and interesting.
