College students always wish they could major in something they spend most of their time doing, such as Facebook or Twitter. Now a school in South Carolina is allowing them to with a social media major.

Newberry College in Newberry, South Carolina has created an undergraduate major dedicated to social media.

“It’s one of the first interdisciplinary majors in social media,” said Tania Sosiak, associate professor of graphic design and social media at Newberry College told Columbia, South Carolina television station WACH FOX 57.

“It’s a blended major of graphic design, communications, business and marketing, psychology and statistics.”

The major is attracting students who are interested in using social media marketing in business, which has become one of the biggest aspects of marketing in business in recent years.

Coursework for the major will begin in August 2013.

We’re all for this program, as it is a great sign that higher learning institutions are finally trying to keep up with the times.
