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
