The courses offered in the Web Site Design Certificate provides students with the skill necessary to design sites that are visually attractive and emphasize the human-computer interface aspects of Web sites. The content of the program emphasizes basic principles of attractive design and teaches students the techniques for using graphics on interactive, presentation, and commerce Web sites. Students are encouraged to use their creative skills and artistic ability to design pages that are unique, attractive, and effectively use both text and graphics for navigation and linking.
