Certificate in Website Design

As technologies are advancing at an extraordinary rate, our culture is shifting to one where the world wide web is the focus of influential media. Websites contain the information we seek, and as more and more websites are published on the internet, the need for web designers is growing. At Webster University, our Website Design Certificate program will teach you how to use your creative skills and artistic ability to design unique and attractive websites.

The Certificate in Website Design provides students with the skill necessary to design sites that are visually attractive and emphasize the human-computer interface aspects of websites. The content of the program emphasizes basic principles of attractive design and teaches students the techniques for using graphics on interactive, presentation, and commerce Web sites. Students are encouraged to use their abilities to design pages that effectively use both text and graphics for navigation and linking. The program includes practical experience with numerous hands-on and real-life projects.

As businesses and organizations are developing and maintaining websites at an astonishing rate, more artistic and design expertise is required for those who develop and maintain these sites. The website design certificate is intended to meet that presentation need.
