What Is Multimedia and Web Design?

This program option provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of multimedia and Web design. Students will be able to choose from courses that focus on Web page design and development, multimedia programming, 2D and 3D graphics and animation for the Web, video and sound editing, and dynamic scripting (programming) languages to create vibrant websites. Students will learn how to integrate different types of content (script, design, video, audio, etc.) into an artistically powerful whole multimedia project.

Web designers determine the look and feel of an entire website. Web art directors have a degree in commercial art or fine arts with a strong course background in graphic design, computer science or information systems. Specialized coursework in Internet and website technology is very helpful. Courses should include Internet software languages, website design using graphics and audio-visual techniques, website setup and maintenance and information security. Courses in marketing and advertising will strengthen your credentials. When seeking an entry-level position in this field, it is important to have a portfolio containing samples of your best work.
