School of Communication



B.A. in Advertising/Public Relations

Advertising and public relations put a face on a brand and give an organization its personality.  Tony the Tiger, Ronald McDonald, 7-Up the Uncola all got their start in Chicago. 

Chicago is a major market for advertising and public relations with hundreds of agencies and client companies located here.  Only New York has more people working in those fields than Chicago. 

Aspiring advertising and public relations people often dream of a career on Michigan Avenue.  At Loyola, our students start there.   The Advertising and Public Relations major is based at the Water Tower Campus, in the heart of the professional communications community. 

Loyola’s location makes it easy for students to get first hand exposure to the industry.  Working professionals routinely visit Loyola to give presentations, attend professional panels and provide career guidance to our students.  Since we are so close it is easy for executives to visit our Loyola between meetings or after work.  Many faculty members are also industry professionals, ensuring students learn relevant, real-world applications.  

Our downtown location also lets students take advantage of internships, networking events and other learning experiences with the many agencies, media, companies and non-profit organizations in the area.
