Announcing the NEW Web and Interactive Media Design Certificate Program
We are announcing the expanded scope of the Web Design certificate program, now called Web and Interactive Media Design. Since 1997, Extension’s Web, graphic and multimedia design programs have helped thousands of students hone their skills. Our curriculum has evolved to reflect the trends in business and personal communication, mobile devices, social networking, dynamic Web pages and interactive gaming. We’ve added or expanded numerous courses on mobile media and interactive Web skills. As a result, designers know they can turn to us when they need to expand their skill sets. We want your certificate to clearly convey the depth of your new skills, so we’ve changed the program’s title to include Interactive Media.
Any course you’ve taken towards the Web Design program can now be applied toward the new certificate. If you have already declared candidacy for the Web Design certificate, you can choose whether to receive your certificate with the old program title or the new one. Simply tell us your choice when you file for certificate completion. The certificate requirements, last updated in 2011, stay the same.
We hope this new certificate program will help you achieve your career goals. Visit the revised program page and browse for courses that fit your interests. If you have questions or comments, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
