Certificate in Human Communication in a Mediated World
Indiana University Online

Program Details

Indiana University offers the online Certificate in Human Communication in a Mediated World. This certificate is a response to the growing necessity for humans to learn to interact more effectively in a world where people frequently move in and out of traditional face-to-face and mediated communication situations. Face-to-face communication is altered because of our mediated experiences, which are now an integral part of our society.

Students will acquire the ability to understand and apply traditional and mediated communication theories appropriately and effectively in organizational, intercultural, interpersonal, persuasive, and mass media communication contexts. Students will also acquire skills to examine, understand, and apply appropriate communication tools, processes, and strategies in computer-mediated environments.

This undergraduate certificate is awarded by Purdue University at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). IUPUI is administered by Indiana University.


Regular admission to the university as a degree or non-degree seeking student.
