“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, Associate Professor of Practice in the School of Communication
