The Web Development major prepares students for careers that use established World Wide Web concepts and developed technologies to assist for-profit, governmental, and not-for-profit enterprises in developing, deploying, and maintaining their internet presence. Reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of Web Development, the program requires students to either complete a minor in a business field or double major in another field such as, but not limited to, communications, graphic design, journalism, or psychology. This combination of disciplines provides students with skills and experience in computing and transactions or disseminating information. The foundations in computing will also allow students to integrate developing technologies into existing frameworks.
The program is intensely hands-on and team oriented and is designed to ensure students graduate with a portfolio of computing projects. The instructional focus is on a deeper understanding of the technologies and enterprise goals by building and testing web based solutions. The program provides students with expertise and understanding of industry standards software and includes examining competing products and technologies as possible problem solutions.
In addition to satisfying the University Core Curriculum requirements, with WTNG 220 as their second WTNG course, Web Development majors must complete the fourteen (14) required CIS courses including CIS 469 (internship), BUSN 100 and MRKT 200, and either: A minor in one of the following business areas: Accounting, Business, Economics, Finance, Management or Marketing; or complete a second major. The program is designed to facilitate completion of the interdisciplinary goals.
