Wherever you live or work, our DMT online degree is designed to develop your creative, technical, and business talents to advance your career as a digital marketer.
Digital marketing technology falls broadly into the field of “Informatics,” which is the study of how users and systems interact to accomplish goals. The program takes a multidisciplinary approach featuring content, design, development, and distribution.
The heart of the curriculum is in areas of web technology and enterprise technology systems. Courses in software and web applications, marketing, design, production, and analytics provide a cross-disciplinary approach to prepare students for a broad range of careers where the job titles are just emerging and will be constantly changing and growing in the foreseeable future.
Businesses realize the importance of hiring people who understand both process and technology, which results in a hot job market where talent is limited, jobs are abundant, and salaries are high. This program prepares students for this job market and to grow as it changes.
This multi-disciplinary degree focuses on the marketing technology. The program emphasizes the application of theory to practice and will require a cooperative work experience with an approved employer. The program’s professional core (41 credits) draws from a number of academic disciplines including:
- Information and Communications Technology
- Computer Science
- Cross Media Graphics Management
Students will take elective courses from these disciplines and have added flexibility to develop a secondary area of vertical depth. Using those flexible credits to achieve a minor will be encouraged. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first B.S. degree in Digital Marketing Technology offered in the United States.
