In the Classroom
Faculty, such as Ryan Romero (above), bring real-world
knowledge to the classroom.
The collaboration between coursework and industry allows students to focus their training, enhance their portfolios and build a network that assists them in landing professional positions. Faculty work deliberately to provide students opportunities to work with and present to real clients on long term projects. Previous clients include: Samsung, Texas Athletics, HEB, HomePlate Peanut Butter, Groovy Automotive, Voodoo Doughnut and other local non-profit organizations.
Every advertising student completes specialized coursework in advertising management, research, media and creative as well as elective coursework in relevant subject areas.
To better bridge the gap between academia and industry, two application-only programs are also offered: Texas Creative and TexasMedia.
