The Department of Advertising — the first such academic department in the country — was established at the University of Illinois in 1949.

The department was created by Charles Sandage, known as the "father of advertising education." Like virtually every other advertising program that rose in its shadow, it reflected the structure and functions of the modern advertising agency.
