Journalism - Public Relations and Advertising One Year Technical Certificate

Journalism - Public Relations and Advertising

One Year Technical Certificate - Curriculum Code 4150

The communications profession, especially journalism, has dramatically changed with the advent of the social media. Many journalists have left the newsroom to start their own ventures in public relations, marketing, advertising and other related fields. Unfortunately, many of them face immense challenges because of their lack of knowledge in social media, marketing  and advertising.  Similarly, marketing and public relations graduates also experience the same challenges.  A comprehensive certificate program covering all these four areas – journalism, public relations, marketing and advertising – will be help these entrepreneurs launch their career goals. Lorain County Community College has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by Lorain County Community College's University Partnership.
