Professional Social Media Certificate
The Professional Social Media Certificate is open to students of any major, as well as professionals. It serves as formal training and evidence of your preparation in the field of social media.
You will learn to generate content, write for various online platforms, and use analytics to measure success. In your final course, Advanced Strategic Social Media, you will create a complete social media campaign for a real client giving you a hands-on experiential learning opportunity.
“The number of jobs that request or require skills and knowledge in social media is continuously growing, yet there are still very few educational credentials available to help students demonstrate a mastery of this expertise that organizations need. This certificate is a concrete way for current students and professionals already in the field to obtain formal training in social media, as well as gain evidence of their preparation.”
Julie Cajigas, Professor of Practice in the School of Communication
