Humber’s Advertising Copywriting graduate certificate program teaches the specialized skills needed to create powerful, effective copy for all forms of printed advertising, radio and television commercials, and interactive media.
We have a strong community of program alumni who help new graduates network, as well as faculty who are active in the industry and bring extensive experience to their classrooms.
If you enjoy writing, working in a high-energy, high-intensity environment and collaborating with other creative minds, copywriting is an ideal choice.
Students come into this program with all types of undergraduate degree majors and college diploma programs. In fact, some of our finest graduates have undergraduate degrees in the social arts, humanities or the sciences.
If you define yourself as creative, but you're not a graphic artist, this program is most likely for you.Courses Program Standards
Your two-month unpaid work placement can take place as early as May or as late as July. Our faculty will work with you to help you find a suitable placement.
The Humber AdCentre was launched as a live lab to provide students with real work opportunities before entering the industry.
Instead of just being given just a grade for assignments, students are provided with a chance to work with real clients, on actual accounts, receiving first-hand experience in the field.
Working with established businesses will not only prepare students for the fast-paced excitement of the industry, but will also help develop portfolio work and reference points for interviews.
The average North American is exposed to close to 3,000 advertisements each day yet recalls only 12. To write memorable ads as a writer and conceptual thinker in the creative department of an advertising agency, you need specialized training in advertising copywriting.
Our graduates find positions at local and multinational advertising agencies, as well as direct response, pharmaceutical and digital agencies. Some of our graduates pursue in-house writing opportunities with large corporations or with municipal or provincial governments while others eventually go into business for themselves, enjoying the flexibility and variety of working as freelance or contract copywriters.
