Social Media Management Education Program

We live in an age of Social Media. What was a nonexistent field just 10 years ago is a driving force behind business today. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, careers relating to social media will increase 24% from 2008 to 2018. Social Media is not only a growing field but, it is bringing with it tremendous job opportunity. Simply Hired reports a national average salary of $82,000 for social media marketers.

SPCS, in collaboration with our online partnership with Dalton Education, is proud to offer a Social Media Professional Certificate and Social Media Strategist Certificate. This is a cutting edge program, designed to teach the business applications of social media communications. This self-paced online program is convenient, practical, and affordable with the flexibility to begin at a time that works best for you.

The Social Media Professional Certificate is designed for individuals with little experience with social media, or those who are looking to gain in-depth knowledge so they can control social media to build and extend brand awareness, better service current customers, and leverage social media for new customers.

The Social Media Strategist Certificate is the program for students seeking a greater mastery of social media strategy, organizational development, measurement, and analytics.
