CURRICULUM GUIDE

Computer Graphics, Web Design
Associate in Applied Arts Degree

Curriculum Code: 0914  (Effective Fall 2003 - Summer 2008)

A Web designer combines type, graphics, animation, sound, and programming to
create a complete experience for the Web visitor. The Web designer should have
a basic fluency in all aspects of site development and must learn to balance
content and quality concerns with those of e-commerce. The Web designer can write
code and create graphics, develop and organize content, build the structure of
the site, and assist with interface issues. Web design is a cooperative process,
and the designer may work with interface designers, marketing professionals,
engineers, and computer technicians. Not all courses in this program transfer to
all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or
counselor before enrolling in any course.
Students should see the Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information. See the Assessment and Placement Testing section for
skills assessment and advising information.
