Minor and Certificate Programs in Digital Marketing
The Digital Marketing minor and certificate are jointly offered by the Department of Information Technology and Operations Management and the Department of Marketing at the FAU College of Business. Our Digital Marketing program enhances the qualifications of students pursuing careers in fields related to business, marketing and information technologies. Students acquire knowledge and skills in online and digital business and digital product delivery, as well as in developing, analyzing and enhancing a company’s presence on the web and in social networking.
The Digital Marketing Minor is for degree-seeking students at FAU. For the minor, 9 of the 12 credits must be earned from FAU.
Students cannot obtain both a certificate and a minor. To complete the minor/certificate requirement, four courses are required. Both the minor and certificate program require 12 credits each, with minimum grades of "C" required in all courses. For non-Business majors, waiver of related prerequisites will be made on a case-by-case basis. To waive prerequisites for Management Information Systems (ISM) courses, please contact the ITOM Department. To waive prerequisites for Marketing (MAR) courses, please contact the Marketing Department Chair, Dr. Cheryl Burke Jarvis.
