MARIETTA, Ga. -- Marketing management students at Chattahoochee Technical College now have the option of specializing in social media as part of their degrees.
Social media classes will be offered online this fall. The specialization includes a series of four courses: Exploring Social Media, Analyzing Social Media, Consumer Behavior and a marketing elective.
CTC marketing instructor Rick Nelson said social media is revolutionizing the field.
"Our marketing management programs will expose students to this technology and better prepare them for the new reality of marketing," he said. "No doubt our student population is very skilled at using Facebook, Twitter and other social media every day in their personal lives. We will prepare our students to be on the leading edge of utilizing these platforms to sell more products and services for their future corporate employers or in their own business ventures."
