The Web Design certificate can be used as a stepping stone to the Studio Art/Graphic Design Option degree program. It will prepare the student for transfer onto a Baccalaureate Degree Program at a four year institution. It can also be helpful in gaining employment or to further enhance current skills for those who are already employed. Web Design is becoming more and more necessary in small business and corporate settings and a skilled web designer must be in place to accommodate this need.
