Program Overview

Liberty University’s Graduate Certificate in Marketing program is designed to enhance the essential communication and leadership expertise required for many careers within the marketing field. Specifically, students may develop applicable knowledge within the subjects of management, advertising, promotions, market research and consumer behavior.

The graduate certificate program is designed to increase the student’s marketability within future marketing careers. However, students that are interested in personal enrichment or self-development are also encouraged to enroll. If students choose to advance their education in the future, they may transfer their certificate program’s credits to the Master of Business Administration degree at Liberty University.

To earn the certificate, students must complete three designated courses for a total of nine credit hours. The three courses are Strategic Marketing Management, Marketing Promotions, and Marketing Research. The cost of tuition for each full-time credit hour during the 2013-2014 academic school year was $490.

Some specific course topics covered through the program are promotional theory, organizational promotional tactics, methods to increase brand awareness, and evaluation of marketing research. The curriculum may also provide students the opportunity to work with modern data collection techniques as well as software used for report generation. In addition, students should gain product marketing experience by managing the creation, development and deployment of a marketing program.  

The program requires that all students complete the designated courses through Liberty University with a letter grade of “C” or higher. Students must also complete the program with a GPA of at least a 2.0.

Graduate certificate students will also have access to a number of different academic resources while enrolled at Liberty University. Students may use the Online Writing Center, advisors, and online library throughout the program’s duration.
