Published: Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College will offer a new Associate in Applied Science degree in web design and development beginning in January 2014.

These courses are for people seeking a new career, enhancing web skills or for students without prior related experience.

“A web design and development degree prepares students to be able to walk onto a job, design a beautiful, functional site and code it themselves,” MCC computer instructor Meri Winchester said.

Students will gain the skills needed to become web designers and web developers. Students will learn design theory and gain experience in programming for browsers and servers. Students will learn how to develop websites for deployment on mobile devices and standard computers and the development of static websites and database-driven websites.

MCC also offers a one-year web developer certificate totally online through the college’s Fast Track program from Jan. 6 to Dec. 19. Students take two classes per 12-week segment, including during the summer months. This web developer certificate prepares students to program database-driven web sites and coding, not design. 

For information, email Winchester at mwinchester@mchenry.edu or visit www.mchenry.edu/webdevelopment. For information on the online web development certificate, call Lori Smyth at 815-479-7831.
