Digital Badges


What are they?

Digital Badges are micro-credentials that allow students to demonstrate mastery of specific skills in addition to their majors and minors. Badges are another way to differentiate yourself in the eyes of future employers.

How are they used?

Digital Badges can be placed on a CV, website or Linkedin profile.

How can I earn one?

At STAC, badges are awarded after the completion of a 9 or 12-credit sequence in a specific interdisciplinary area. Currently badges are available in the following areas: Design Thinking, Digital Marketing, Digital Production Skills, Ethical Awareness, Medical Illustration, Social Media Skills, Social Justice and Entrepreneurship.
