See the Areas of Study Marietta has to offer

It’s no surprise that Marietta graduates are successful PR and marketing specialists, copywriters and corporate communications professionals. In the advertising and public relations track within our strategic communication major, you’ll learn about the nature of persuasion, media ethics, digital communication, advertising campaigns and more — and gain experience and professional connections that provide a valuable portfolio of projects to show future employers.

Majors all complete an internship, and often more than one; sites have included H. G. Heinz Corp., Ogilvy & Mather, Moroch Inc., Lake Chautauqua, Columbus Clippers and several other advertising and public relation agencies and nonprofit organizations. And with two radio stations, a television station, and an award-winning newspaper on campus and all run by students, you’ll be able to work in a variety of mass-media markets starting in your freshman year.

Join Marietta’s chapter of the American Advertising Federation for even more opportunities. Our students have competed — and taken honors — in national advertising and marketing competitions, attended career fairs and student conferences, met with industry professionals, and won prestigious regional and national scholarships.
