Embrace the future of media

Social media is arguably one of the most important forms of media to emerge in the last 50 years. And, while most people write it off as something only teenagers play with, in the right hands social media is powerful.

A minor in social media will help you learn how to transform social media channels into:

  • A very effective marketing tool
  • One of the best ways to report live events as they happen
  • A powerful way to network

At SFA, we investigate the role this exciting new form of media plays in society and how it can be used to change the world.

Tweet it, like it, pin it, work it

Social media may be new, but it’s turned into a powerful industry and a viable career path. Companies have Twitter feeds, and customers can interact with brands on social networking sites like Facebook and Pinterest. And that’s just the beginning. By studying social media, you’ll be prepared for a career in an exciting field that is still evolving.
