The Web Design AAS Degree prepares students for careers in web design. The program places a strong emphasis on creativity and design. Students are introduced to front and development concepts. Using industry standard software, students learn to build content in HTML5, CSS3 and other modern web languages. A host of web development frameworks along with working knowledge and understanding of modern web design trends, UI/UX, responsive design and the implementation of iterative design processes are explored to better equip students with the skills necessary to execute their designs and compete for jobs designing and developing websites in the web design industry.

This program is part of the Visual Communications Careers (VCC) area and is designed to provide you with the skills you need to enter a career once you have completed the degree. Although the A.A.S. degree is not designed for transfer to a four-year school, your general education and liberal arts courses typically do transfer. Some of your career-oriented courses may also transfer to specific majors at certain schools through the petition process.
