The New England School of Communications at Husson University was one of a growing number of institutions selected to join the WebProfessionals.org Education Alliance. The Education Alliance is an international initiative promoting high quality and interdisciplinary Web professional education and degrees. WebProfessionals.org is a membership
supported professional association created the Education Alliance in
1997 to develop resources that enable educators to present innovative
courses and programs that map to the rigorous demands of those that hire
and employ Web professionals.
Through the alliance, NESCom participates in establishing rigorous and relevant standards in Web professional education that enables students to be prepared for a competitive job market.
Scott Traylor, Director of WebMedia at NESCom: "In addition to our students receiving a bachelors of science in communications technology, our affiliation with The World Organization of Webmasters (WOW) allows students to more easily pursue their professional certification, attend professional conferences and have access to employment opportunities as they become available through the WOW network."
