The Ad PR Workshop

A Client Pitch Welcome 12-19-2013

The Ad/PR Workshop (MCA 468) is the capstone course in the Advertising & Public Relations Program of the Media & Communication Arts Department at CCNY. This undergraduate class enables pre-professional students to go deep into a single, semester-long assignment in partnership with an actual client – especially those with a public service, community based project. Workshop students utilize research methods, analytical skills as well as an organized and conscientious approach in order to solve real life marketing communications problems. By semester’s end, student teams transform their in-depth analysis into strategic communications plans which enable them to create, produce, and implement comprehensive communications campaigns that meet the client’s marketing objectives in service to the community.
