Web Design

18-credit Technical Certificate

Develop skills needed to produce graphically appealing websites that are easy to navigate. Learn the basics of design, page layout, web animation and HTML coding through the use of Adobe Creative Suite Web software, which includes Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Flash. This certificate is geared toward those currently working in the the graphic design industry who possess a background in the creative side of print production, but little or no background in web design.

Some credits earned in the Web Design short-term certificate program may be applied toward degree and diploma programs in the Graphic Communications area within WCTC’s School of Applied Technologies.

For students in the Web and Media Design degree or Web Design certificate, the Web Animation 201-124 class is currently not available. As a replacement course, students are asked to enroll in one of the Web Animation/Flash 1 201-121 courses. Credits earned from this course will be counted toward the degree/certificate in place of the 201-124 course.
