You're a Good Fit

The Web Development & Design Certificate is best for individuals currently employed as designers and seeking to expand their skills, or graduates from a design program that did not extensively cover web design or development. Existing knowledge of fundamental design principles is important as the courses do not introduce these topics (such as typography, contrast, and hierarchy) but instead demonstrate how they apply specifically to web design.

Individuals with either professional or educational graphic design experience have a higher chance of succeeding due to the quick pace of the certificate. Unlike SCC's two-year graphic design program, this certificate does not extensively cover design and visual communication basics.

No prior web development knowledge (HTML & CSS) is required as students will learn these web development basics during their first semester.


Web designers and developers are in constant demand as the design world continues to be more digitally focused than ever, and designers with knowledge of web design and development are highly valued. Career options following completion of this certificate include:

  • Web Designer
  • Front-End Web Developer
