It gives a thorough grounding in advertising as a business as well as a deep understanding of consumer culture. It is centred on four major areas: how the industry works, digital media production, social and market research techniques and theoretical examinations of culture and consumer society. You explore the advertising business and topics surrounding it, such as branding, promotional communication, cultural theory, media planning, new media, social media and advertising creativity.
