Marketing (BS) - Digital Marketing
Target the right audience online with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing with a concentration in Digital Marketing. If you're interested in a field that's ever evolving, this may be the right path for you. This concentration allows students in the online marketing program to up their skills in everything from digital brand identity and search engine optimization to search engine marketing and digital analytics. By taking this route, you'll have the opportunity to master the mobile environment, better understand social media and evaluate metrics that could even help your organization develop stronger campaigns.
SNHU's digital marketing degree concentration incorporates all avenues of the digital marketing world. Students in this concentration will explore digital marketing strategies and analytics and learn what it takes to promote brand awareness through current platforms and technologies.
“Email, website, display ads, social media…there are many platforms in digital marketing," says Marcio Moerbeck, adjunct faculty at SNHU. "Brand building, engagement, thought leadership...as students get to understand digital marketing, they see it’s more than only social media.”
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the median annual wage for advertising and promotions managers was $133,380 in May 2021.1 A career in digital marketing opens the doors to a number of exciting career paths. For example, if numbers and research interest you, you could consider a path that explores data or analytics. However, if you're looking to flex your creative muscles, you could consider a path in digital advertising or brand strategy.
By taking this concentration, you can consider jobs in SEO management, marketing and automation and content writing.
Courses may include:
- Mobile Marketing
- SEO vs. SEM
- Digital Advertising
- Digital Analytics
Marketing (BS) - Social Media Marketing
The BS in Marketing with a concentration in Social Media Marketing program teaches students how to apply social media trends, build brand awareness and analyze metrics in a marketing context. The social media marketing degree concentration shows students how to engage and enhance brand experience while strengthening the direct relationship between customer and product.
"Students will learn about the importance of a strategic approach to social media marketing. Students will also understand the role analytics play in an engaging social media marketing campaign that achieves organizational goals and promotes brand awareness," says Dr. Jessica Rogers, associate dean at SNHU.
Christine Viera '21 opted to add the social media concentration to her degree.
"As I already work in the field, I understand the importance of social media and thought it would help my career as it is," she said.
Viera is also quick to point out what this concentration means for her future. "[Social media] is an important aspect of where my chosen career path is going."
From Facebook and Instagram to Twitter and Google Analytics, these are no longer just platforms and tools, but ways of engaging with and tracking consumer behavior.
With a concentration in social media marketing you'll be at the forefront of the social media movement. Now more than ever, brands and businesses are turning to social media to build strong emotional connections with consumers.
By adding this concentration to your degree, you could be prepared to take on roles in social media strategy, community management and even analytics.
Dara Edge '15 MBA, who now works on SNHU's marketing team as a social media producer, holds both a BS in Marketing and an MBA in Project Management. She now uses her skills to track, manage and build community across SNHU's social media platforms.
“My marketing and project management degrees have been beneficial for all of my previous roles and my current role,” said Edge. “As a social media producer, it helps with understanding our target audiences and how to manage our social media presence. It also helps when analyzing our social media data and in managing the many moving parts of the job.”
Courses may include:
- Social Media Marketing Strategy
- Social Media Campaign
- Digital Advertising
- Writing for New Media
Earning your bachelor’s in marketing can give you the skills you need to apply for a variety of entry to mid-level marketing roles, opening the doors to many possibilities in the marketing world. You could spend your days developing campaigns at ad agencies, working on sales teams, conducting market research studies, and using data to improve business results.
"Careers associated with this particular degree are those in sales, advertising, promotions," said Dr. Jessica Rogers, associate dean at Southern New Hampshire University. "There has been a growth in the number of job postings for these types of positions over the last several years."
That's good news for Jolene Stetz '21, who has a specific path in mind.
"One of my overall career goals is to become a marketing director," she said. "I'd really like to work at an international company. And this degree is helping me to really build that foundation."
Here are just some of the career paths you could pursue with an online bachelor's degree in marketing from SNHU:
Responsible for coordinating marketing efforts using best practices, developing pricing structures, developing overall marketing strategies, overseeing product development and more.

"With an additional MBA on my resume, I have been able to triple my salary and become a leader within my current organization," said Bailey.
Job Growth and Salary
Prospects for roles in the marketing field appear promising in the coming years.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can you get a marketing degree online?
You sure can!
In fact, earning a marketing degree online can oftentimes be more convenient for adults, since you get to determine your schedule – not the other way around.
"I was working full time and needed a flexible solution to finish my undergrad degree," said Max Bailey '17 '20MBA. "One of my favorite parts about the online program was how structured and consistent it was. I knew from day one exactly what assignments were due, when, and their contribution to my overall grade. This was incredibly helpful for me to plan school around my busy life, and not the other way around."
Jolene Stetz '21 agreed.
"I chose SNHU because of the convenience of being online," she said. "I could keep working full time. I could keep enjoying the things in my life that I enjoyed and I wouldn't have to worry about moving or logging in at certain times. The flexibility is phenomenal."
In addition to offering more flexibility, there may be other reasons you'd find studying online to be an attractive option.
Online degrees are often more affordable than the traditional classroom model. Another reason that Bailey transferred from another school was due to the cost.
"I felt I was paying far too much for what seemed to be a subpar marketing education" at a previous school, he said.
The combination of affordability and convenience make earning a degree online worth researching.
"I would definitely recommend SNHU to anyone who cares about the quality of their education, but doesn’t have the time to commit to daily lectures and in-person classrooms," Bailey said.
How much does an online marketing degree cost?
Online degrees have a reputation for being affordable. And earning one from a nonprofit university means what you invest in your education gets reinvested back into the programs – you're not lining the pockets of shareholders.
At Southern New Hampshire University, undergraduate programs – like our online marketing degrees – have a tuition rate of $330 per credit.
"I've saved thousands of dollars," said Jolene Stetz '21. "SNHU is less than I ever expected to spend on college."
The overall tuition cost, however, is dependent on each student's situation. A BS in Marketing at SNHU is 120 credits. But many of our students transfer in credits, which can save you plenty of money.
SNHU accepts up to 90 credits toward your bachelor's. If you're able to bring in the full 90, your degree here could only cost you $9,900 for the remaining 30 credits.
A conversation with an SNHU admission counselor can help you determine what you may be able to transfer in and how much your degree could cost you.
Are marketing degrees in demand?
Yes! According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, a bachelor's degree is required for most marketing manager positions. This is because studying in a degree program can teach you analytical, decision-making and interpersonal skills that the industry demands.1
The BLS states that employment of advertising, promotions and marketing managers is projected to grow 10% through 2031.1
That means in that time frame that over 30,000 positions could be added to the workforce.1
With so much growth, you'll want to make sure you stand out to get the position that you want.
At Southern New Hampshire University, "our marketing programs are different in that they were designed with a very strategic approach by our academic team, including myself," said Dr. Jessica Rogers, associate dean. "We have connected and aligned our programs to industry."
Plus, with the option to add one of two concentrations to your degree – digital marketing or social media marketing – you can add even more skills to your resume.

Be sure to speak with your academic advisor who will help you devise the best schedule to suit your goals. You may find that taking an extra course each term will help you accelerate your path.
SNHU’s generous transfer policy also allows students to transfer up to 90 credits of previous higher education coursework to a bachelor’s degree program, saving you time and money.
"I was a little surprised," said Jolene Stetz '21. "I kind of expected none of the credits to come over and to just start new and that would have been fine, but I was really excited to have that head start. So a bachelor's degree would normally be like the traditional four years, and I am getting mine done in two."
Plus, with 15 free elective credits in this program, you'll have the opportunity to explore topics within the marketing realm, as well as topics in other programs as well, making earning your marketing degree a well-rounded experience.
What are the different types of marketing degrees?

Max Bailey '17 '20MBA believes his SNHU marketing degree was worth it.
"At SNHU, I didn’t feel alone," he said. "As someone who waited 6 years to go to college after high school, I felt very old and far behind my peers when I started at another university.

This, plus the accelerated nature of the program, has allowed me to catch up and even exceed in my career."
