Daytona State to launch social media marketing course
Daytona State College is offering college-credit instruction on how to tap the power of social media technologies in business.

Social Media Marketing is a college-credit, stand-alone course that launches this spring semester along with a parallel course, Advertising.  Both courses will be offered online.

While each three-credit-hour course can be taken by anyone wanting to gain new skills, they also can be incorporated into a new certificate in sales entrepreneurship started this fall in the college’s School of Applied Business. Additionally, credits can be applied toward a number of one- and two-year business-related programs already offered at Daytona State, as well as for an associate of arts degree elective.

For more information, call 386-506-3467.
