Located in the College of Communication and Information, the Advertising program at University of Tennessee Knoxville integrates the business of advertising with creative, interactive and innovative solutions. 


Advertising is all about solving a marketing problem both strategically and creatively. Advertising is a strategic business practice with a creative twist. It is the collective study of human nature, business, communication, history, politics, culture and economics. As a business tool, advertising develops memorable and informative messages that tell a meaningful story to the right people at the right time, in the right place, in the right way, in order to make a sell. 

The professionals who work in this field are the driving force behind every ad and campaign seen or heard; they are responsible for creating a message that lingers within the public consciousness. If you’re interested in pursuing a career in business with an imaginative twist, advertising is an exciting and ever changing major that will not bore or disappoint.
