I took the UX Design Certificate Course in the spring of 2020 and had an absolutely amazing experience. I had just started out my career as a product designer and I would have been completely lost without this course!

I have a background in Graphic Design so the UI came fairly easy to me, but UX is a completely different animal. I never knew there could be so many different facets of design and it was very exciting to see all the different directions I could go as a designer.

Our instructor, Jenna Brucoli, was fantastic. She is incredibly knowledgeable and always had perfect real-life examples to give us to help us better understand the material.

We started our final projects the 2nd or 3rd week of class so that we were continuously practicing what we had learned. This was incredibly helpful and important in my learning.

I made fantastic connections and friends through the course. I highly recommend this course!

I’ve completed two courses at BrainStation now – Digital Marketing and Social Media Marketing. While Digital Marketing provides a good (high level) overview of many digital channels (including a week on social media), it was helpful to dedicate the full 7 weeks to Social Media Marketing. The curriculum dives into Facebook and Instagram with less time allocated to YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Influencers.

The course brings you through the full cycle of campaign creation; from identifying your segment, setting objectives, ad creative and copy, and implementing campaigns. Getting set up with Facebook Business Manager and working through the tool in class and with the instructors’ tips was great! I’d say it’s a pretty good balance of learning and application.

I have huge appreciation for the instructions, Alex and Amber! They enhanced all of the course material with their own experiences and insights from being professionals in the industry.

I recommend the course for people new and/or somewhat familiar with social media marketing (I’m in marketing myself but don’t work in digital marketing), but it might not be advanced enough for someone already with a hand in paid social.

FAQ

  • Do you offer financing for tuition?

    Yes we do! We offer different payment options based on the course to make our education as accessible as possible.

  • Are computers provided?

    BrainStation courses are BYOL (bring your own laptop). This allows you to complete homework in the comfort of your own home and to become comfortable with your machine to continue your learning beyond completion of the course.

  • Can I just learn on my own?

    Ultimately people are social learners, there is nothing that can substitute a classroom of students as eager to learn as yourself. It may take you years to learn something on your own without proper guidance. At BrainStation we have industry experts that condense years of learning into a matter of weeks and provide resources to support you beyond graduation as well!

  • Who are my teachers?

    All of the teachers at BrainStation are experts in their respective disciplines and bring extensive real world experience into the classroom. Simply put, you are learning from the best and brightest. Most importantly, everyone at BrainStation is extremely passionate about education and empowering our students.
