Execute compelling social media campaigns that employers will love.

A certificate in Social Media Marketing will equip you with the proven strategic experience needed to launch evocative campaigns. You’ll learn to develop social media marketing campaigns based on a company’s goals, target market, research, analytics, and budget. Plus, you’ll gain the skills to illustrate the all important Return on Investment (ROI) on your marketing initiatives. So you’ll graduate with the tools and best practices necessary to embark on a rewarding career.

You’ll also leave here with the skills to communicate effectively, articulate your career preparation confidently and collaborate with others meaningfully. And in all things, we’ll help you work toward becoming a capable and trusted disciple of Jesus Christ. So whatever you do, you’ll be prepared to be the best you possible.

Ensign College programs are designed to prepare students to be capable and trusted disciples with market-ready skills. The College programs are not designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation in Utah or in any state, country or territory.
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN AN ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE (AS) DEGREE?

If your goal is to get a transferable, skills-based degree, you’re in the right place. Any certificate can be combined with general education courses to create your AS degree.

Seeking to expand your job-related skills to broaden career options? Strengthen your resume by including two certificates in your degree. Or, discover new interests by choosing one certificate and exploring elective credits. Are you a Pathway student interested in attending Ensign College? Those earned credits can be transferred to your AS degree as electives.

Whichever option you choose, you’ll graduate with the technical, critical thinking and interpersonal skills that employers look for, so you can secure a career and excel.

Interested in continuing your education after you graduate? No problem. Your regionally-accredited AS degree, which includes the credits from your selected certificate(s), can be transferred to a 4-year institution.

You can reach your success advisor through the Student Success Center at studentsuccesscenter@ensign.edu or 801-524-8151.
