This spring, Austin Community College will offer courses in social media communication. The coursework prepares students with the essential skills needed to fill the variety of jobs in this growing field.
Students will learn to develop social media strategies to promote organizations, products, and services, as well as how to use analytics to monitor and improve those strategies. Classes will give students hands-on experience creating, implementing, monitoring, and analyzing social media and social information channels.
“Most people know social media only as a way to communicate with family and friends, but it is rapidly becoming a broader venue for companies and communities,” says Jill Brockmann, adjunct professor of business and technical communication. “This is a first step toward a new employment field that is expected to only grow.”
ACC’s spring registration is now open; the semester starts Jan. 14. ACC has an open-door admissions policy, meaning everyone who meets eligibility criteria is encouraged to enroll.
