Web Design | Casper College, Wyoming

Web Design

Two students in front of large computer monitors.

Do you consider yourself creative, with an eye for detail and a penchant for computer science? If so, you might consider a degree in web design. Web design is a mix of artistic ability, problem solving, and computer science.

To build effective websites and applications, you need a specialized skill set. As you work toward your degree in web design, you will gain experience in creating computer graphics, content, and animation — all elements that play a role in how a website informs, entertains or sell products and services to its audience. You will learn about building effective, user-friendly websites; including design concepts, how to write code, and the importance of publishing standards-based content for a variety of formats.

Students will study the issues and challenges of creating and maintaining websites, design and interface usability, and how to maximize the effects that websites and apps have on a variety of audiences.

The Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree teaches the web design, e-commerce, scripting, and authoring skills necessary to advance in the field of web design. General education classes and other business classes are included in the program to provide students with general business, communication, and problem solving skills. This is a nontransfer degree program.

The certificate is designed for individuals who have an interest in web technologies but who are not interested in completing general education requirements to support a more rounded education. The certificate is more job specific and deals mainly with technical studies.

The A.A.S. program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
