The Certificate in Multimedia & Web Design I introduces students to industry-standard design software, programming languages, and “front-end design” concepts of information architecture and interface design. Students focus on constructing web pages, elements, and entire sites in three tiered web design & development courses and are later introduced to content management systems (CMS), audio & video, and animation & interaction for the web. Multimedia & Web Design I certificate students have the opportunity to complete their program with a professional portfolio – a valuable tool as they transition into the workplace.
