Media Content Management Certificate at a Glance

What is a Media Content Management Certificate?

Businesses, government agencies and nonprofits increasingly utilize a variety of digital communication strategies to engage with the public, clients or other key stakeholders. Graduates from all disciplines often find themselves tasked with these responsibilities in a new job, or find while searching for job opportunities that previous experience or know-how in managing websites, social media or media production is a sought-after skillset. The Media Content Management certificate from Boise State University can offer students across campus the opportunity to take a set of courses that will demonstrate to hiring managers that they are experienced and versed in the management of various forms of digital media. Working professionals switching careers or those looking to expand their skillset will also benefit from the Media Content Management certificate.
