The Stan Richards School of Advertising & Public Relations is a world-class program for students interested in the advertising and public relations industries at the undergraduate, master's or Ph.D. levels.
We have consistently been ranked as one of the top advertising programs over the past 20 years by employers and competitors, and our school is home to one of the largest undergraduate and graduate student populations of any university.
