The advanced certificate in communication and digital media is comprised of courses focusing on digital media that have both career and scholarly applications. The certificate combines both academic and pragmatic perspectives and assists students and practitioners in better understanding the research and theory of digital media, in message creation, and in the analysis of these dynamic new channels. Collectively, courses also enhance critical thinking, global interconnectedness, ethical reasoning, integrative literacies (digital, technical, communication, and aesthetic), and creative and innovative thinking.
The curriculum is designed for those who need to update or upgrade their skills, certify their competence, add to their credentials, or improve their understanding of media. The courses are taught online in eight-week sessions, (two per semester) to accommodate students who would like to complete the four-course certificate in one academic year (or two semesters).
