The World Wide Web has evolved from its academic origins into a medium for education, entertainment, finance, business, and commerce. Web pages employ a range of multimedia including virtual reality, graphics, animations and video. The Certificate is designed to train students in modern web page development tools and aesthetics to become competent, creative web page design professionals.
The World Wide Web Publishing Certificate is a cooperative program between UW-Parkside's Art and Computer Science departments. Two courses in art provide graphic design skills and aesthetics, and two computer science courses provide introduction to computer productivity, web page editing tools and web programming languages. Students complete the certificate program by electing either the art course in Advanced Web Design or the computer science course in Web Server Programming.
The certificate program serves two types of students: traditional students who want to augment their major and improve employability by adding Webmaster skills, and professionals interested in the essentials of Web page design. Individuals may enter the program at any point, depending on their background experience.
In cases where students have art and/or computer competencies, courses may be waived with the consent of the program director.
