Martin-Hall Agency

Martin Hall Agency

The Martin Hall Agency (MHA) is a course-based, student-run advertising and public relations agency in the Reed College of Media at West Virginia University.

The Martin Hall Agency offers Reed College of Media students professional agency experience by servicing real world clients. Students learn how to manage client accounts, develop and execute strategic communication campaigns built upon market research and executed through innovative strategies. Students learn how to both lead and follow in a hierarchical team-focused setting that mimics today’s worldwide agencies. By the time our students finish the MHA capstone experience, each are ready to hit the ground running in any agency around the globe.

The Martin Hall Agency is instructed by two Reed College of Media professors—one advertising professor and one public relations professor. Together, the two professors offer a full-view professional and educational hands-on experience to train the next generation of agency professionals.
