Return to Associate Degree and Certificate Programs Return to: Associate Degree and Certificate Programs

(27 semester hours)

The Web Design certificate provides learners with a foundation in web site development with a focus on content creation instead of programming. A blend of artistic and technical computer based skills is critical for anyone seeking work as a web page designer. This certificate provides an excellent opportunity for both tech students and emerging artists to broaden their career path. Today, all businesses have a web presence and this certificate provides students with the skills needed to obtain entry level web design positions.

Learners who complete the Web Design certificate will:

  • Use the core technologies of current markup languages such as HTML, XHTML and CSS for web development and design
  • Demonstrate an understanding of and familiarity with web site development requirements, skills and techniques, and web site design principles
  • Design and implement accessibility-compliant user interfaces. Students will demonstrate this skill by creating web sites that meet web accessibility standards as described by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) guidelines.
  • Design and produce dynamic web content that interacts with the user. Students will demonstrate this skill by creating web sites that employ the fundamental client side interactive Internet technologies, such as Javascript, Dynamic HTML, and Macromedia Flash.
  • Design and build web sites that incorporate the graphical elements required of business web sites. Students will demonstrate this skill by creating web sites that employ all of the major industry standard graphical file formats and graphical compression techniques.
  • Demonstrate familiarity with the principles of good design and use computer graphic programs to produce individual design projects
  • Demonstrate fluency in two and three dimensional design concepts such as drawing, line, space, color, texture, composition and how to convey these in a digital format for web based users
