Web Design Certificate

The Adult Continuing Education program will not be accepting new Web Design Certificate applications. This will not prevent current students from completing the program. Please contact Continuing Studies for more information. 

The Web Design Certificate is designed for students, working adults, artists, and designers interested in exploring the expanding field of web design. The full course sequence provides the foundational skills required for those wishing to build website portfolios for personal and professional applications. Students with previous web design experience will also find current topics and new approaches to update their web design practices.

Note: Before starting this program students are required to have a working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and/or Adobe Photoshop, and should feel comfortable navigating the directory structure and creating, deleting, renaming, and moving files and directories without assistance.
