We live in an era of media convergence. The dramatic rise and influence of digital media outlets and social media are matched by the decline in readership and viewership of traditional media. These changes have led to a significant shift in the advertising and public relations industries. As these industries have converged, it makes sense for the study of advertising and public relations to come together into one department. The new Department of Advertising and Public Relations offers two separate majors that will help prepare our students for further academic study and for careers in a digital world. Read on to learn about each of these majors. 

Advertising

Advertising is a competitive, creative, challenging and exciting industry, serving major businesses at the intersection of media and society. Advertising students will develop skills in strategic planning, research, copywriting, art direction, media buying and planning, sales, management, team work, leadership, and oral and written presentations. Students will be well prepared for careers in digital and traditional advertising as well as media and marketing organizations in all kinds of industries. Our program prepares students to work at the nexus of economic communications and social communications. They will be positioned to succeed in professional careers and to respond wisely as citizens, consumers, and community leaders.

Advertising students at Temple University fall into clearly-defined groups:

  • Students energetically interested in advertising as a career;
  • Students who have creative talent in art, design, writing and strategic thinking and wish to express that talent in a professional career;
  • Students who are broadly interested in media and the power and mystery of advertising;
  • Students interested in marketing, sales, or business, but who do not wish to major in business or finance;
  • Students who think advertising will be a fun and creative way to get a job-oriented college degree.

  Students in the Advertising major will learn:

  • How to identify appropriate research designs for understanding consumer wants, needs, and communication behavior, and be able to interpret the results for developing brand and advertising strategies;
  • How to conceive, write, design and produce advertising in all media formats which can be measured against marketing objectives and strategies;
  • How to establish strategies and to negotiate executions for the investment of advertising dollars in all media vehicles and how to evaluate the results;
  • How to manage client relations and the process of producing advertising from strategy through production at a profit.
  • How to be prepared to respond to a rapidly-changing, fragmented digital media environment. 

Public Relations

The Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations consists of 18 courses (49-50 s.h.). In the Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations, students learn the theories of communication influencing how public relations (PR) is practiced while developing the knowledge base and skills they need for critical thinking, speaking and writing - the basic foundations for becoming a PR professional.

The goal of the Public Relations major is to help students understand public relations is an ongoing communication and relational process, not a position. Viewed this way, public relations requires responsible, thoughtful reflection and action from all levels of organizations, not just those in leadership positions. This approach requires competencies of self-awareness, oral and written communication skills, ethical decision-making and action, and the ability to understand audiences' needs, wants and desires, and generate mutual win-win scenarios using a variety of communication tools to generate a vision and lead with, through, and for others to bring about positive change.

This program will build both knowledge and skills for students to understand true public relations, e.g., "relating" to publics through building a meaningful two-way dialogue built on mutual trust and respect, and be able to effectively formulate a position and influence and empower others. They will be able to use the knowledge gained from this program to bridge the divide between the theoretical and practical application in the organizations they work in and the communities they serve.
