A certificate program is a way to advance in your career without investing in a lengthy degree program. Certificates are awarded by colleges and require various amounts of coursework hours. Once earned, the certificate is a coveted credential that demonstrates expertise in a specific area.

What is a certificate in media? Media is a field within communications that includes different aspects of entertainment or information. Media can be related to television, film, broadcasting, video games, or the Internet. Many media programs deal primarily with computer design and online tasks. Often, media students are trying to tell a story using visuals and sound devices. Some possible topics that may be covered in a media certificate program could be web authoring, narrative strategies, content creation, photo editing, coding and multimedia production. Coursework in media divisions of universities help prepare students to become digital producers who develop unique content and messages geared toward specific audiences. 

A certificate in this field gives an individual the necessary tools to help in a job search. Students also learn how to unleash their creativity and design unique, compelling stories.

Pricing for individual programs may be very different across various university and college departments depending on location and type. Some programs require more investment, and other institutions may be much more affordable.

Furthering one’s career in this field is much easier when there is a credential that matches the highly sought out skills that companies are looking for. Media can be found throughout many different types of industries, so job possibilities are quite widespread. A certificate in media could be helpful for those seeking careers within advertising, and a person could use the skills learned to create commercials for television, movies or the web. Another type of position with this knowledge could be a content creator for the Internet. Jobs in this field can be found in individual corporations or specialized web-authoring companies. 

If you’re hoping to make yourself more marketable with employers, online classes can help. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
