The field of web development has expanded beyond a simple online presence to fully interactive, dynamic content. The Digital Media Program’s Web Development Major prepares students for positions in a field that requires an understanding of both the aesthetics of development for online platforms and the server-side technologies that drive the content. Students have opportunities to hone their technological skills while still developing their creativity as designers. This methodology coincides with the direction of the industry, where web developers are often in charge of both the technical and design aspects associated with online content. The internet’s explosive rise as the dominant communications medium has been accompanied by an ever-increasing level of sophistication in the content and applications used by individuals and businesses. Within their coursework, students develop applications and games for mobile platforms, explore content management systems and harness server technologies that drive aesthetic content. Students take core courses in all aspects of digital media, complete a six month coop and delve into rigorous coursework in many areas of specialization.
