VCU Brandcenter offers a two-year graduate program which provides an intensive, real-world education for future advertising leaders.
We offer a Masters degree in Mass Communications with a concentration in one of five tracks.
You love design and photography. You comment on fonts and color choice. You think in visuals or words, but most importantly in ideas. Plus, you don't mind using a Mac to produce the concepts you come up with.
You love letting your creative spirit run wild. And that's why you have a copywriting partner to bring you back in focus.
As soon as you learned to write, you made up stories. Jokes. Poems. You're a wordsmith whose mere utterances make people laugh. Or cry. Or smile.
You're an idea maker who thinks big but also has the ability to take a huge thought and make it simple.
You've mastered the art of knowing how to speak to people in a way that moves them. You are deeply curious and wonder how everything ticks.
You can boil market research and analysis down to concise, meaningful conclusions. It is your insights that serve as a blueprint for creating a great campaign.
You want to produce smart, breakthrough creative work for your company. You are not afraid to take risks, yet you have the business knowledge necessary to make sound decisions on behalf of the brands you manage.
You possess strong strategic skills, enjoy managing people and projects, and understand the need for accountability.
Technology is not your destination; it's your vehicle. From strategy to concept to design, your innate curiosity compels you to tinker in different fields to produce creative work. You're a tech-savvy thinker who loves to explore new frontiers and dive into technologies on your own. Not knowing is not an option.
Creative technology isn’t just a job title; it's a mindset.
