If you have or are close to earning an associate's degree, you are well on your way! Classes begin in January 2019 and are open to all students, regardless of area of previous study!

The demand for marketing specialists is strong, and our curriculum prepares you to step into a variety of roles related to digital marketing, social media content creation, branding, public relations and crisis communications. You will learn not only those applied skills but also the theoretical frameworks related to consumer and organizational behavior that inform marketing strategy.

The course format is flexible and allows you to continue working full-time. The "hybrid" courses are a combination of in-class sessions and online work. All classes are held in the evening on the NECC campus in downtown Lawrence. You will gain work experience and network connections along the way via a supported internship in a local corporation or non-profit organization.
