Why WVU Digital?

What is Digital Marketing Communications?

Marketing to where audiences are and anticipating where they're heading: Digital Marketing Communications is creating a dialogue with your audience that builds a community around a brand or organization. It's all about building trust and providing customers with long-term value so that they become advocates who bring you more customers. Digital marketers must have a thorough understanding of search engine optimization, organic and paid search, display marketing, social media marketing, marketing automation, content marketing, multi-channel analytics, always-on campaigns, and desktop and mobile user experiences. Understanding these digital marketing platforms, and using the consumer insights they provide to develop more impactful marketing campaigns is central to the WVU Digital Marketing Communications degree.

Adam Payne

For Adam Payne, Digital Marketing Communications ‘22, grad school was never part of the plan. While getting his undergraduate degree in journalism in the Reed College of Media, Covid-19 hit and changed his plans. After some input from other students and professors, Adam took the leap.

“If someone is interested in the program, I would definitely just tell them that it is as flexible as you want it to be and as accommodating. I think what's really great about it is there was such a diversity of people in my courses ... I think the program is really designed to help as many people as possible because you don't have to be sitting in a classroom the whole time to get it done.”

— Adam Payne, Class of 2022

Hear from our students. Learn from their experiences. This is My Marcom Story.

It really meant a lot to have the support, even though it's an online program and there's a lot of people we haven't interacted with in person. You just felt the love and support there. Knowing that you're a mountaineer for life, I think that that's really what makes the program wonderful.
