If you flip through the pages of a magazine and stop to look at the ads, or analyze the clever commercials shown during your favorite TV show Mad Men, then there could be free money for college available just for you. Majoring in advertising in college requires students to take courses in marketing, research, media-buying, art and design, copywriting, journalism, and more. It’s an all-encompassing major that can lead to jobs such as account executives, art directors, copywriters, and more, at major advertising agencies like BBDO or Ogilvy. But, if you dream of being the next Don Draper or creating the biggest Super Bowl ad of the year, be sure you also include a scholarship search to help you pay for that advertising degree!
