Web Design Certificate


The web design curriculum is focused on creating web designs that are accessible, visually appealing, cross-browser and device compatible, and that follow design and development best practices.

The web design 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.
