Students pursuing an Advertising Creative minor develop an understanding of creative processes in developing advertising campaigns. Creative is also a longstanding industry standard used in the profession for describing individuals that create advertising content for various media and communication forms including traditional (i.e. direct mail, sales letters, brochures, television, radio, internet) to more innovative forms (social media platforms, interactive promotions, brand user experiences, etc.).
