Winnipeg’s Herzing College has added a media coordinator diploma course to its career-training programs.
The nine-month course will add to its recently acquired radio and television broadcaster program formerly of the Academy of Broadcasting.
“This is an emerging field that requires training and strategic thinking. Formal education in this field is necessary and encouraged,” said Christine Ens, director of membership and marketing for the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce.
The new program — which is now accepting applicants — will prepare students for employment opportunities in social media marketing, online marketing and advertising, communications, and online media.
Start dates are staggered at multiple points throughout the year. The program will run Monday to Thursday for 20 hours per week.
