These online marketing and communication degrees can help expand your career options.
There have never been so many ways to transmit and share information as there are today. From social media to video streaming services to electronic billboards to traditional radio and television, there is a lot of what’s collectively been termed “content” available.
And people are using that content, with younger adults spending as many as 18 hours a day reading, viewing, or otherwise consuming this information.* Who is managing all this content—and earning a living doing so? Many of them work in the marketing and communications fields. If that’s an industry you’d like to join, the online degree and graduate certificate programs below can help get you started.
