Should I major in advertising or marketing?

I have been debating on whether I should major in marketing or advertising. I have a minor in design and I have a huge portfolio full of graphic design and photography. I also have worked in graphic design positions. I am looking to work for a creative agency, an art gallery/museum, non-profit organization or a magazine in either a business position or in a creative position (like a graphic designer). Which major would be best or does it not really matter?

    Advertising is marketing. It's a specialization. Therefore, you'll become more employable. They'll teach you about niche markets and such.
