About Marketing at Lancaster

Originally, marketing was concerned with our basic needs and the use of expertise to deliver the right products, with the right packaging and promotion, to the right place at the right price and time.

In an internet-connected world, the application of marketing principles to politics, culture and consumption has become far more sophisticated and creates new demands for relevant knowledge, skills and expertise. Helping you acquire these skills is at the heart of our degrees.

Working with some of Europe’s leading academics and managers offers you the opportunity to develop your practical skills and conceptual capabilities and become a key player in the world of marketing, advertising, and online communications. Whichever programme you select, the research-led teaching that informs your degree will provide practical and real-world examples and experiences for you to explore with your tutors. 

Our graduates have an excellent record of employment, and obtain challenging and fulfilling posts with blue chip organisations, major advertising and media agencies, as well as a host of other business, government, and charitable organisations.

Degree Flexibility

Our degrees are designed to help you switch the focus of your studies as your interests develop. We understand that committing yourself to a particular degree when you haven't studied it before is a big decision, so your first year, known as Part I, doesn't count towards your final degree. At the end of this year, you will have experienced different subjects which will help you to make a clearer decision about what to you want to study for the rest of your degree, known as Part II.

Placements in Industry

On most of our degrees, you have the option of doing a placement year. For some, the placement is an integral part of the degree, but on most of our other degrees you can also take an optional placement year. If you’re able to take that extra year, you’re likely to find it very beneficial. The experience will give your employment prospects a huge boost – you will not find it hard to secure interviews for graduate jobs.
