What is a Certificate? Certificate programs offer a series of courses within a given area of study and permit individuals to develop a well-defined knowledge and skills base generally not available in either a major or minor program of study. Certificate programs do not lead to a degree program. They may be completed by either degree or non-degree seeking students. A student does not have to be a major in the School of Communication to complete a Journalism or Multimedia Advertising certificate.
Multimedia Advertising: This is an interdisciplinary program jointly offered by the departments of Art and Communication in the College of Arts & Communication in the College of Arts & Sciences and the Marketing Department in the James J. Nance College of Business Administration. The program provides students with a breadth of information and practical know-how in advertising communication, marketing strategy, graphics copywriting, and design. It introduces contemporary advertising theories and practices by integrating traditional media - such as print and broadcasting - with new media - such as computer graphics and the Internet.
