The Associate of Science Degree in Digital Media Technology with a Web Design Specialization provides students with cutting edge skills that meet a global industry demand in the field of web design and development. The program balances aspects of artistry, technology and business principles giving students the adaptability required to succeed in this dynamic field. Students learn universal design theory and principles, balance, symmetry, lighting, composition, visual and aesthetic appeal. Students address business and marketing concerns by understanding effective communication, page layout, storytelling to enhance usability and interactivity in User Interface design. They are able to integrate that knowledge into a digital multimedia environment, using the latest industry standard hardware, software, and techniques. 

Students advance their skills by exploring a variety of media such as imagery, sound, video and integrating that media into a web environment. Students are introduced to front-end web development skills such as web programming, scripting, database connectivity and the fundamentals of data driven interactive web development. These skills prepare students to understand customer requirements.

Through hands on projects and practical exercises students develop the ability to use critical thinking, creative thinking, problem solving to progress from concept to production and to effectively communicate throughout the process.  They experience scenarios that require effective teaming, exceptional individual effort, and the ability to succeed in true to life, high demand, and high pressure situations. Students have many opportunities to develop a portfolio, build their resume, and begin networking in the industry. This program offers students the ability to earn two college credit certificates in digital media core skills and in digital media web design skills as a part of the Associate of Science degree.
