Bachelor's Degree in Advertising and Public Relations


The Bachelor's Degree in Advertising and Public Relations aims to train highly qualified professionals with the skills needed to work in agencies, businesses and both public or private institutions and organisations. They will be able to focus on the creativity, design, production, management and administration of accounts, as well as work on media planning and research into consumers, target audiences and markets.

Students receive high quality training thanks to the degree's hands-on approach and the facilities at the Faculty of Communication Studies, which provide students with the tools needed to meet the real demands of this profession. Students can choose from three specialisations: Creative Direction, Strategic Management in Advertising and Strategic Management in Public Relations.

Given that this professional field is in constant transformation , the degree is periodically renewed and redefined with the aim of actively contributing to the assimilation of new forms of communication. To achieve this, the relation between teaching and research is vital. That is why the degree includes five leading research groups: the Business and Institutional Communication Management research group; the Advertising research group; the Laboratory of Instrumental Analysis of Communications; the Migration and Communication Research Group (MIGRACOM) and the Radiophonic Advertising and Communication Research Group (PUBLIRADIO). The last two are accredited by the Government of Catalonia.
