B.S. Degree Program

The BS Web Design and Development (WDD) program provides a solid background in both the breadth and depth of web site design and development.  The proposed curriculum would be an integrated degree which consists of a core set of classes (31 credits), a set of classes in one of 3 emphasis areas (24 credits), and a minor or 2 clusters of their choosing. 

Through the core classes, a student will gain a broad understanding in web site design and development. They will gain a fundamental understanding of web site design, development, as well as the business and communication aspects of web technology.  

Through the emphasis areas, students will gain an in-depth understanding of one particular area of web technology.  Students can choose to emphasize in one of three areas: Web Communications/Business, Web Site Design, or Web Site Development.

A.A.S. Degree Program

The A.A.S Web Design and Development (WDD) program provides a solid background in both the breadth and depth of web site design and development.  The proposed curriculum consists of a core set of classes (28 credits) and a set of classes in one of 3 emphasis areas (15 credits). 

Through the core classes, a student will gain a broad understanding web site design and development.  In this core, they will gain a fundamental understanding of web site design, development, as well as the business and communication aspects of web technology.  

Through the emphasis areas, students will gain an in-depth understanding of one particular area of web technology.  Students can choose to emphasize in one of three areas: Business/Communications, Web Site Design, or Web Site Development.  An overview of the proposed curriculum is detailed within the course catalog. 

The A.A.S. degree is more of an applied degree than the B.S. degree.  A graduate of the A.A.S. will have a similar breadth of knowledge as a graduate of the B.S. degree, however will lack depth in an area of emphasis.

Minors and Clusters

Students can choose to emphasize in one of many minors. Minors within WDD are offered to both Web Design and Development majors and Non-Web Design and Development Majors. The following minors are avaliable for students: Web Technology, Web Design,  and Web Development. An overview of the proposed curriculum is detailed within the course catalog.
