About the Program

The Advertising and Marketing Communications program provides strategic and creative experiential opportunities within the exciting world of advertising.

This approach prepares students to be strong contributors in the classroom and in the workplace and allows them the opportunity to work consistently with clients to enhance their communication competencies.

The emphasis in Conestoga's Advertising program is on the integration of creativity and planning by blending projects and assignments throughout the courses.
