Program Description

The courses offered in the Web Site Development certificate provide students with basic knowledge and skills necessary to design and develop professional Web sites. The content of the program emphasizes the technical development of the site, including the use of HTML programming, additional markup and scripting languages, and other tools to manipulate data on a Web site.

Students are encouraged to use their creative skills and artistic ability as well, to design pages that are unique, attractive, and effective in communicating information. The program includes practical experience with numerous hands-on and real-life projects.

As businesses and organizations are developing and maintaining Web sites at an astonishing rate, more technical and programming expertise is required for those who develop and maintain these sites. The Web site development certificate is designed to meet that particular need.

Minor may be taken in lieu of the certificate program. Students may choose to receive the minor or certificate but not both.

For information on general requirements for the certificate, see Certificate Program Policies and Procedures.
