The MA in advertising is a wonderful experience. The professors are truly dedicated to helping you get connected in the industry, and the coursework provides real-world insight.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The campus is nice, and students are friendly. The courses are challenging. Most of the professors are adjunct and only teach one or two courses. Therefore, they are rarely accessible on campus.

SMU has a good program but the program is slightly too theoretical during the first year. Career services provides help but they are not friendly.

So far the program has been great. I feel challenged but not impossibly overwhelmed. I'm very happy with the class size and the dedication to course materials by the professors. The area is awesome and the student body is supportive.

The majority of interesting classes in the program aren't offered every semester. A lot of the classes that are offered are 5000 level courses which are offered for both graduate and undergraduate students, these 5000 level courses are not nearly as challenging as the 6000 courses offered through the program, this was very disappointing since graduate students are usually looking for that challenge.
