We collaborated with the University of San Diego to create a learning experience full of best practice strategies on organization, marketing, design, writing and much more. As the only company in the industry to offer an online graduate credit opportunity for yearbook advisers, we made the course affordable and flexible. Grad credit can also be earned by advisers who attend Jostens Adviser University or the San Diego National Yearbook Workshop. Customers learn more on Yearbook Avenue > Digital Classroom.
