About Certificate Programs

Certificates of proficiency are designed to measure your knowledge of essential skills or information. To receive a certificate, take the NewsU courses associated with that certificate program and then successfully complete the online assessment for each course. Once you've passed all the assessments, you will receive your certificate from Poynter's NewsU.

Appropriate use of social media is an essential part of building an audience and doing journalism online. In this certificate program, you'll examine best practices used by journalists and activists to make their voices heard and explore some of the core tools most commonly used today.

The interactive courses and on-demand video replays in this series will show you the ropes, point you to the right resources and help you formulate the questions you most need answered. When you're done, you will have a solid understanding of what it takes to build a social media strategy.
