Why a graduate certificate in strategic communication?
You’re eager for a promotion or looking to add responsibility for more of the communication mix in your organization. Maybe you’re a public relations pro and are expected to do more with paid media, or an advertising specialist looking to do more work in employee communication. Or you want to better understand all parts of your organization’s strategic communication portfolio and move from individual contributor to leadership. You need knowledge! With this certificate in hand, you’ll gain the combination of theory, practice and experiential learning to broaden your knowledge and make you more valuable to your organization. And, you’ll differentiate yourself as a communication professional, gaining an important credential for your resume and LinkedIn profile.
Why the graduate certificate in strategic communication at BGSU?
We’re the ideal blend of veteran researchers, instructors from business and industry, and creative and experienced thinkers. Plus, the Graduate Certificate will introduce you to graduate study; you could consider the Certificate a “test drive,” opening doors to even deeper and more substantive learning in a Master of Arts program later.
The strategic communication program truly encompasses the progression I need in my career. I am a web design/developer, so I am used to being behind the scenes at work, but this program will give me an understanding of the industry from the other side.
