Develop a Copywriting Portfolio and Earn a Master’s Degree
Offered in Partnership with Leading, Accredited Universities
You may hear that having a master’s degree in not necessary to get a job as a copywriter in an advertising agency. That’s true. Agencies want to see an impressive portfolio filled with your creative ideas for ads, products and videos. But with the enormous growth of brands having in-house marketing departments that create their own content, having both a portfolio AND a masters degree is a tremendous advantage. Great job, great pay, great future. And there is another advantage. Should you ever want to teach in a college or university you will need a master’s degree.
Who is This Program For?
You have a bachelor’s degree. Perhaps in advertising, philosophy, business, political science or history. Or maybe pre-law or pre-med, something your parents encouraged you to do. But you found out, that’s not you. You always loved ideas and wanted to do creative things. Sure, you want a masters degree. But in a creative field. So now it’s your time.
This School is Different. The real world is your classroom.

“I reached out to an ad agency and asked them to hire me. They said, “Go to Miami Ad School and we’ll hire you when you’re done”. So I did that, came back with my portfolio, and they hired me.”

First Hand Accounts of Careers in Copywriting
Creative Director, Momentum
A copywriter’s main job is to come up with ideas. Our trade is writing. Everything from catchy headlines, to viral content, social content, broadcast spots, to even TV episodes from time to time.
So far in my career I’ve made video games that suck blood in real life for Blood Clinics, created full length episodes of TV, shot music videos in the mountains of India, created internationally published comic books, and written some moderately funny coupons.
