Program Philosophy

Our team of knowledgeable and talented faculty will provide you with a foundation in writing valid XHTML markup, separating content from presentation with CSS, designing information architecture, applying principles of accessibility and usability, technical writing, and web project management. We emphasize design concepts, such as color theory, gestalt principles, typography, and page layout. You will also have frequent opportunities to work on group projects, acquiring essential collaborative, communication, and self-regulation skills.

We teach popular software applications (e.g. Adobe CS6) and scripting languages, however, you will become aware that tools change frequently in the industry. We will help you to become a successful lifelong learner so that after you graduate, you can easily stay current in this rapidly changing field.
