Why Choose This Program?
With approximately 1 billion websites on the Internet today, effective web design is essential to capture the attention and commitment of web visitors. Think of it this way. All the world’s competitor’s are but a mouse click – or finger swipe -- away.
A career in advertising web design and development is an exhilarating blend of creativity and technical skill. Web designers must understand how to clearly present information for online viewing. Web designers also must understand ever-changing coding languages and standards, interactive media, and how to best reach web users on any device.
Having a web design and development degree gives you the flexibility to work almost anywhere, including businesses large and small as well as the government. You can even go into business for yourself as a freelance web designer or web development consultant.
As a student, you will have ample opportunities to participate in professional organizations where you can develop your networking skills, get to know local professionals, and spruce up your resumé.
