The country’s first influencing course is set to start in Carlow in September 2023, according to a Business Post report.

The four-year degree will be available at the new Southeast Technical University (SETU) and aims to equip students with the skills needed to gain social media followers.

The content and social media creation course also includes business training and academic theory, according to the report.

A social media placement will also be included in the course.

The degree has not yet been given the green light, but the final stage of approval is underway.

Dr Irene McCormick, Senior Lecturer in Media Studies, Teaching and Learning at SETU, told Business Post: “It’s about teaching people what’s behind it, making them more business, but also you are better at what you do if you understand the conventions. , if you understand the fundamentals of what you do.

Last summer, the college professor hosted a summer school for high school students, courtesy of IT Carlow.

She said: “There are huge numbers of media graduates now getting into media marketing, working in the online space because the vast majority of jobs are in the online space right now. It’s a booming area that, unless we lose all the power, won’t go away.

SETU is not the first university in the world to offer a degree on how to become a social media star.

In 2019, an Italian university created a three-year degree program on how to become an influencer.

In the United States, Duke University offers a class called building global audiences, known as the TikTok class.

And earlier this year, Tampere University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki, Finland launched a degree program providing professional training for social media influencers.

And here in Ireland, Coláiste Dhúlaigh, a further education college in North Dublin, launched a one-year social media course in 2021.

Social media users were quick to react that students will now be able to learn about it, though on the third level.

One Reddit user said, “What’s the lesson – being hot, desperate for attention, and loud and obnoxious?”

However, others have been supportive of the course, with many agreeing that it will likely be a modernized version of a digital marketing degree.

One person said, “Colleges already offer courses in social media skills with marketing, so it’s not much different.”

New course to help families hosting Ukrainian refugees Mon, 16 May 2022 02:10:03 +0000

An online course on Ukrainian culture and language is to be launched to help British families hosting refugees. The Open University (OU) will launch the course later this summer, and it says it was developed by leading scholars.

The move is part of a series of measures supported by the OU, including free online resources for Ukrainians such as English lessons and mental health support through the OpenLearn platform. The university has waived fees for current Ukrainian students and prospective Ukrainian students can apply for 12 scholarships worth £240,000.

Vice-Chancellor Tim Blackman said the university was “appalled” by the situation in Ukraine and wanted to support people “in the best way possible, by offering free online learning, scholarships and financial aid to Ukrainians as they seek refuge in the UK, as well as educational resources for UK host families.” He added: “We believe that accessible education is a powerful tool to improve people’s lives. and we will continue to mobilize our resources across the university to show our support for Ukrainians.”

Minister for Higher and Further Education, Michelle Donelan, said: “Our world-class universities have always been underpinned by the core values ​​of liberty and liberty, and so it is great to see how many of them have united with Ukraine by opening their doors to students displaced by this terrible war. These Open University initiatives are a fantastic way to support those fleeing armed conflict or persecution in their home countries who need help rebuilding their lives.

“Separately, this government has provided up to £4m to institutions to support students from Ukraine who may face difficulty. We are currently working with universities in the UK to explore what support can be given to Ukrainian universities to help them continue to teach their students remotely, alongside what we can do to ensure Ukrainian students can access funding to support their studies – with more information on this in due course.

The news follows Oxford University’s announcement in early May of a new fully-funded postgraduate scholarship program for Ukrainian refugees. The scholarship will commence in the 2022-23 academic year, aimed at supporting highly qualified graduates from Ukraine whose lives have been severely disrupted by the ongoing conflict.

I am deeply honored, at this pivotal moment in history, to join the inspiring team of changemakers at the Texas Women’s Foundation. I consider it a sincere privilege to take on the leadership role of this extraordinary organization and to continue the critically important work of my incredible predecessor who did so much to lay the foundations for change.

There is a legacy of service in my family, and I proudly walk the path created by the strong women in my life who blazed the trail starting with my mother and all the way back to my great-great-grandmother. , Maria Buckner Stokes, who graduated from the Hampton Institute in 1890. Her daughter, my great-grandmother, Julia Bertha Stokes, graduated in 1918, and my parents, Suzanne Wilson and Thurmond Woodard, graduated in 1970. When I crossed that stage, I became the fourth generation to graduate from Hampton University. Also, my grandfather, Lt. Col. Theodore Wilson, was an Airman from Tuskegee. I have many of his memories, including his wings, notes and flight manuals, which are a constant reminder of the courage it takes to pursue the unimaginable. Service, education and the fight for opportunity are literally in my DNA.

My cumulative experiences over the past 25 years and throughout my life have converged to prepare me to face this moment with courage. My childhood included frequent moves. I have spent a lot of time abroad, which has instilled in me an appreciation for the beauty of diversity and fueled my passion for creating communities that celebrate difference as a unifying force, which uplifts all members. Likewise, my career has focused on advocacy on issues ranging from domestic violence and sexual assault to child hunger and foster care reform. It only reinforced my desire to make a real, lasting difference for women and children – and why the mission of the Texas Women’s Foundation is so near and dear to my heart. Joining an organization founded in 1985 by 19 incredible founders from all walks of life who came together to create a needed movement that has become a powerful force for change is testament to the legacy that I cherish so deeply. I am part of a community with a strong Board of Directors and volunteers who share the same vision: to invest in strong women so that we can build a strong world.

Working to improve the circumstances surrounding the issues and people you care about can be difficult. In times of significant adversity such as the past few years, however, we must not tire of the journey, but rather remember that now is the time to dig and deepen conversations at the intersection of race, sex and intrinsic value in society. Now is the time to stay the course – and we will do it together. Together, let’s continue to elevate and amplify the opportunities available to women and children in the great state of Texas. Together, we will find ways to authentically engage across differences and prioritize lasting strategies that unlock progress on racial and gender equality. Together, we will work to reform our social, educational, political and economic structures to create a more equitable and inclusive society for all. Together we will stay the course and set the world on fire.
