Performance Packages

University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College offers a number of Performance Package Certificate programs to help students upgrade skills and knowledge, making them more marketable professionals and more valuable employees. Each Performance Package Certificate consists of three courses that build production or critical skills in a particular discipline. Students can typically complete a Performance Package Certificate program in one year by taking one course per term, but eMedia Communications students can complete a number of the Certificate programs as they complete the required courses for the Associate of Applied Science degree or Professional Certificate program.

Ten Performance Package Certificate programs are currently available with all of the courses offered by eMedia Communications. Students must earn a grade of C or better in each course to receive the Certificate of Achievement for a Performance Package. Students will receive the certificate upon approval of the application form, and may complete any number of certificate packages. Application forms are available from the eMedia Communications office (M217).



Program Options

The Performance Packages may also be taken in addition to the Associate of Applied Science or the One-Year Certificate program for focused training in a specific technical skill or content area, and an enhanced set of professional credentials upon completion of the program.



Program Requirements

A grade of C or better must be earned in all Electronic Media Technology courses that serve as prerequisite requirements, or as capstone experiences, to be eligible to graduate from the program. Courses transferring from other institutions with less than a grade of C may not be applied to courses that serve as prerequisite requirements in any Electronic Media Communications program. Students should see the program advisor about these requirements.
