Course content

Humber’s Advertising Copywriting graduate certificate program teaches the specialized skills needed to create powerful, effective copy for all forms of printed advertising, radio and television commercials, and interactive media.

We have a strong community of program alumni who help new graduates network, as well as faculty who are active in the industry and bring extensive experience to their classrooms.

If you enjoy writing, working in a high-energy, high-intensity environment and collaborating with other creative minds, copywriting is an ideal choice.

Applicants are accepted from all types of undergraduate degree majors and advanced college diploma programs. A major in English, art or marketing is not required to be accepted into the program. Some of the finest graduates have undergraduate degrees in the social arts, humanities or the sciences.

If you define yourself as creative, but can’t draw, this program is most likely for you.

Our graduates find positions at local and multinational advertising agencies, as well as direct response, pharmaceutical and digital agencies. Some of our graduates pursue in-house writing opportunities with large corporations or with municipal or provincial governments, while others eventually go into business for themselves, enjoying the flexibility and variety of working as freelance or contract copywriters.
