‘What do I know about Social Media? I have a degree in it!’

Thoughts By 8 years ago

Next year the University of Birmingham will be offering a one year course aimed at teaching students everything from publishing a podcast to how to use sites such as Twitter and Facebook as marketing tools.

Course Convener Jon Hickman is certain the course, which still needs academic approval, will be beneficial ‘to students looking to go into professions including journalism and PR.’

Not every student is convinced though. Jamie Waterman, a Birmingham-based student reported ‘…the content of this course can be self taught…I think it’s a complete waste of university resources.’
