This unit will introduce students to the theory and practice of contemporary advertising by exploring the industry's history and rapidly changing nature in the digital era. The social, ethical and regulatory contexts of advertising are established to encourage students to become reflective future producers or consumers of advertising messages. The strategic imperatives of advertising and notions of effectiveness are examined to build students' abilities to solve communication problems that are commonly faced by private, public and non-for-profit sector clients.
