Just about everyone and everything has a web presence these days. In our Web Design/Web Programming program, students design and build compelling websites from scratch.
As they explore a career field with an employment growth rate nearly four times the national average, students are introduced to the following programming languages software and skills:
- Adobe® applications including Audition®, Illustrator®, Photoshop® and Premiere Pro®
- Contract preparation, project management, search engine optimization, storyboarding
After mastering the fundamentals of computer software, hardware, networking and programming, students delve into design, computer graphics and interactive media. Raster graphics, vector animation, video clips and problem-solving algorithms are just some of what they’ll learn to create while developing websites to serve as platforms for everything from e-commerce to online gaming.
Learning to communicate effectively in a professional setting is a core component of the program, so students are routinely tasked with producing multimedia presentations. Upperclassmen select one of four career pathways on which to focus: Computer Programmer, Graphic Designer, Multimedia Animator/Artist and Web Designer. Motivated students may choose to pursue skill sets associated with multiple pathways.
