Over the course of two years, our Copywriting portfolio program will help you hone your writing skills and turn you into a hybrid storyteller and ideator. In Year 1, you’ll take Copywriting classes taught by the city’s top advertising professionals to help you master the fundamentals of writing for print, digital, broadcast, and more. With each quarter, you’ll add to your repertoire and start to build a professional portfolio that will show off your storytelling skills and help you get hired as a Copywriter.


In Year 2, things get real. You’ll spend most of your time studying and interning as a Copywriter in up to four different cities around the world to gain real work experience before you even graduate. You’ll continue to attend classes taught by top industry professionals and complete hands-on projects that will help you earn your Copywriting diploma.

student stories

“With the Agency Labs, the day I started working at Cossette felt like the day I started my career. We were getting real briefs, tons of work, and presenting to clients. It was a year’s worth of experience before I even graduated.”

“Doing is the best way to learn. Miami Ad School Toronto encouraged me to make prototypes, apps, books, art pieces and other things that I may not have otherwise tried. Doing these things under the supervision of such talented mentors has now given me the confidence to take unfamiliar processes and work through them.”

Banish stage fright through improvisational exercises, dialogue writing, and storytelling challenges that teach you to think on your feet — even in front of an audience.


Leverage the power of social media and learn how to use copy to build authentic relationships online.


Bring the visual and verbal together by teaming up with an Art Director to bring advertising campaigns to life.


Master the craft of writing with clarity. Love words and embrace the relevance of long copy in the online world in ways that are interesting and entertaining.


Embrace the power of storytelling. Learn how to craft a compelling narrative in all your work that resonates with your audience. 


Learn how branding affects the strategy behind the message and communication, product and brand development, storytelling, packaging, marketing, promotion, and signage.
