At RWU, Web Development majors don’t just design, develop and deploy state-of-the-art websites. They work on multi-disciplinary teams to solve problems for real-world clients. In the Web Development Center, you'll meet your first three clients in your sophomore year. As you begin to work with real clients, you'll quickly discover that web development isn't just about technology. On the Web, "content is king." So we encourage you to reinforce your web development education by picking up a second major or a couple of minors in fields like Marketing, Graphic Design, User Experience (UX), Journalism, Communication, Public Relations, Writing, Visual Arts, Cybersecurity and Business. In four short years, you'll graduate ready to meet the growing demand for web developers.
In addition to satisfying the University Core Curriculum requirements, Web Development majors must complete eight CIS courses (three of which are electives) and at least two courses from a list of options.
The Web Development minor serves as a value-added component for students whose major is in an area outside web development. Students gain competence in basic computer packages (spreadsheets, graphics, database, and programming), the elements of business conducted via the Web, and select a subset of the CIS courses that best enhance their education and their professional prospects.
