Advertising (On Location) Program Coordinator: Dr. Pat Spirou The advertising major at Southern New Hampshire University was developed in response to student demand and the growing number of career options in this $400 billion-a-year industry. The program combines elements from the business, advertising, marketing, public relations, and communication fields and allows students to tailor the major to their own areas of interest. Southern New Hampshire University’s Ad Lab is a student run, on-campus advertising agency that offers students real world experience in an agency setting. The Ad Lab offers students production capabilities in a conference-type agency environment. Students can choose between a business focus and a liberal arts focus. Both programs require the same major courses and offer the same related electives. The program is the only one of its kind in New England that offers students dual tracks. Graduates of the program will be prepared to enter the advertising industry and find employment in the creative and management divisions of corporations and agencies.
