Web Development Certificate


The web development certificate courses focus on creating end-to-end solutions including database/data storage, server-side programming, cross-browser and cross-device rendering, and interactivity. They teach web development best practices and standards, search engine optimization, and creating mobile-ready sites.

The web development certificate includes core and elective courses that can be completed in less than one year. Courses should be taken in order, as they focus on building skills as you progress through the curriculum.

If you have existing skills and experience in core courses, additional electives can be taken to meet certificate requirements.
