“All of Kaplan College’s programs are designed to prepare our students to engage the marketplace successfully,” said Haley Johnson, Executive Director of Kaplan College-Nashville. “As more and more organizations adapt social media as a resource for achieving corporate objectives, these organizations are seeking experts to help them navigate the impact and opportunity social media presents. Kaplan College has developed a strong program designed to prepare in demand social professionals for success.”
To achieve certification as a Social Media Strategist, students complete 34 hours of intense coursework delivered through a blended format with most of the content presented online. Students are required to pass a certification exam covering the six primary content domains of general practitioners in social media: strategic planning; compliance and governance; project management; social media marketing; community management; and research and analysis.
