Design and Digital Media: Social Media Technician

Career Pathways Certificate

About the Program

The Social Media Technician Career Pathways one-term certificate prepares students for work in entry-level positions in the social media industry where a working knowledge of Social Media Design applications and skills is required. It is the first step to the one-year Design and Digital Media certificate and the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Design and Digital Media. The AAS is designed to prepare students for employment in various design-related industries and fields, including Web design, graphic design, publishing, advertising, media/printing/editing, or begin careers as freelance designers.

Program Learning Outcomes

The curriculum in RCC courses is derived from a set of identified learning outcomes that are relevant to the discipline. Program learning outcomes for Design and Digital Media programs are:

Technique. Operate tools and technology, and recognize their roles in the creation, reproduction, and distribution of visual messages. Relevant tools and technologies include drawing, offset printing, photography, and time-based and interactive media.

Application. Determine the mode(s) of production required to achieve a specific product and to demonstrate level-appropriate mastery of skills, manual and/or digital, necessary to achieve those products. Apply the principles of color, composition, hierarchy, typography as they relate in the various media—digital, print, motion, 3-D, etc.—that exist in design.

Entry Requirements

Students are required to complete the Placement Process to determine skill level and readiness in math, reading, and writing. As part of their training program, students must begin with the courses within their skill level as determined through the Placement Process. In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their employability and success.

Advanced Standing

Coursework from accredited universities will be accepted in accordance with college policies and the Design and Digital Media Coordinator’s approval. In order to ensure that coursework is current, program courses over five years old must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate department chair before being accepted toward core requirements. Each College Now credit student must meet with the department chair to determine placement.

Credits earned in the successful completion of Career Pathways certificates can be applied to other certificates and degrees in the Career Pathway. For more information, speak to a program advisor.

Graduation Requirements

Students completing the required credits in this program with a grade of “C” or better will receive a Career Pathways certificate in Social Media Technician. Certain prerequisite and required courses are graded on a pass/no pass basis only.  A grade of “P” for these courses indicates a student earned the equivalent of a “C” or better grade.
