SPRINGFIELD, Mo., February 21, 2011 — Drury University will launch an eight-week webinar beginning March 8 for its Social Media Certification. Deltina Hay, author of The Social Media Survival Guide, will lead the class.
The webinar certification covers the usage of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, while also covering lessons in the ethics of these programs and how to integrate them into a marketing initiative.
Drury’s Social Media program began in June 2010 and has been able to reach and impact a wide variety of students. “Since the program’s inception we’ve worked with students from multiple colleges and universities, Fortune 500 companies, federal agencies and numerous small business owners,” said Dr. Curt Gilstrap director of the Master of Arts in Communication program. Students who have graduated from the program speak enthusiastically about the skills they’ve gained in such a short timeframe, in addition to being able to use their knowledge to help them secure valuable jobs and internships.
