In Canada's top advertising program, students take a combo of classes including graphic design, branding, strategy, art direction and creative copywriting. More than half of students get offered jobs before they even graduate at Canada’s only four-year university advertising program. Students learn storytelling from many different points of views and are encouraged to challenge tradition and consider different viewpoints and values.
