At the same time, this course lends itself to studying both " applied " and " theoretical " issues to give students both a real-world view of advertising and promotions, as well as frameworks for understanding such real-world decisions. Specifically, it will focus on the concept of " what is in it for me " and the attempt to establish a two-way dialogue with consumers. The course will offer an insight into strategies that can be developed and implemented to manage promotional activities.

Secondary Emphasis Credit Total = 18

Six credits must be at the 300/400-level.  Any course exception must be approved by the advisor and/or department chair.

The secondary emphasis is for use by students with POEs in other departments. We do not allow a student with a POE in ABE to use one of our own secondary emphases, e.g. Accounting w/secondary emphasis in Finance.

The secondary emphasis is shown on the POE forms using the words "w/secondary emphasis in" (e.g., Communications w/secondary emphasis in Marketing). We suggest that using "and" to connect two disciplines - e.g., Communications and Marketing - implies that the student is a "dual major" and has completed the designated POE in Marketing and sufficient work in the other discipline that a faculty member of that department would approve the POE.

NOTE: prerequisites for 300/400 courses will NOT automatically be waived.
