"The Social Media Certificate helped me get an internship as an administrative assistant at Brandperx LLC in Columbus, Ohio. I am in charge of all the social media accounts and I recently created their first Instagram account. The certificate gave me the skills necessary to be able to implement social media campaigns on a professional level.
This program gave me the opportunity to get experience in the marketing and social media field. I am thankful this certificate is available for all students in any major because social media is a rapidly growing industry that affects everyone."
Shelby Blashford, Senior Communication Studies Major
