How can I teach myself the basics of advertising?
I’m an English major, and nearing the last terms of my time in college. I’ve always wanted to take at least one advertising class at my school, but my other courses always seemed to conflict. In the past year I’ve been interested in copy writing, but I don’t know much about the advertising field.
What are the best ways you’d recommend learning about this field? Should I stick with a textbook like all my fellow peers, or something else?
