social media classroom

Go to LinkedIn or Twitter and you’ll find tons of people who claim themselves to be "social media experts".

These are mostly self taught "gurus" who, with their own experiments, have learned how to harness the full potential of wikis, blogs, social networking sites, podcasts and other forms of social media for the benefit of their clients.

Now if you are not a great self-learner but have plans of becoming a "social media consultant" in future, here’s something just for you.

A UK University is offering a Master’s degree in Social Media that will cover tools like Facebook, blogs, etc. It’s a one year (yes, you read that right) full-time classroom course with a £4,400 fee though the university will also help you find work placement with an organisation that uses social media or is exploring social media.
