Certificate programs often offer an alternative learning experience for people who want to master a skill or land a job that requires certification. There are many certifications that can lead to jobs in competitive fields.

What is a certificate in journalism and mass communication? This is a certificate that requires course work and testing to be completed on subjects relevant to journalism, writing and communications. A course in Introduction to Filmmaking, for example, is a training course for future directors, cinematographers or anyone who wants to be involved in visual storytelling. This certificate program focuses on writing, shooting and editing short films with other students. Students who go into this certificate program will learn the technical aspects of a film set as well as how to communicate to other team members to reach a common goal. Journalism and mass communication cover a wide variety of certificate programs that can be researched online.

With a certificate in journalism and mass communication, it is possible to gain the skills necessary to go into many fields. Whether it’s a course in filmmaking or in digital content management, certificate holders will walk away with networking skills, computer skills and organizing skills.

Most certificate programs only take six months to a year to complete. The cost of getting a certificate depends on the location and length of time to complete the course.

With the Short Course in Online Media and Online Marketing, for example, students can expect to learn about marketing through social media, which is becoming a desired trait in administrative assistants and marketing directors. Many businesses today not only prefer but require employees in certain positions to run the company’s social media account. This is just one example of the practical certificate programs that are available.

Many certificate programs are available online as well as in facilities in most countries. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
