In Digital Marketing program.

Curriculum


Students must complete MKTG 295 and MKTG 350 as well as all general education requirements prior to their taking classes in the M.S. in Digital Marketing program. Having completed all course requirements for entry, students will start taking classes in the M.S. in Digital Marketing program (up to 6 semester hours). These dual-listed courses will also count toward 6 semester hours in the Certificate in Retail Management program. Upon receiving their undergraduate degree, students will then follow the standard timetable for receiving an M.S. in Digital Marketing degree.

Admission will be on a competitive basis, and the likelihood of admission will depend on the number and quality of applicants to the program, the number and quality of applicants to the M.S. in Digital Marketing program in general, as well as other factors normally considered in admissions decisions by the Director of the M.S. in Digital Marketing program.
