Many Career Paths

Every business needs a website, and those websites need designers. You’ll start by understanding the basics of coding and programming, allowing you to develop strong skills in user experience and visual design for static sites and apps on desktop and mobile.

Strong foundations in Digital Media, business, and creative writing will further empower you to tell the story, and by the time you graduate, you’ll have a portfolio and a digital resume to show employers you have the skills to succeed.

Web design isn’t just for Computer Science majors. Business administration, art, creative writing – really any major – can find success in web design, using your creative talents to present an attractive design and powerful copy.
