This unit provides students with the opportunity to gain an understanding of the complex theoretical underpinnings of the advertising campaigns we are exposed to on a constant basis. Advertising Theory and Practice is offered by Open Universities Australia and RMIT University with the aim of allowing students to explore marketing communications theories and how these relate to consumer psychology, as well as how theory can inform practice.
Students will work individually for some parts of the course, but will also work in teams in order to help hone the interpersonal skills that are so important in marketing communications roles. Critical analytical skills will also be developed over the 14 weeks of this online unit, with the aim of enabling students to critique both the work of others and their own work. Frameworks for both analysis and formulation of advertising campaigns will be discussed in depth.
