Full Sail University (http://www.fullsail.edu ), an award-winning entertainment media institution near Orlando, FL, is expanding the availability of its Web Design & Development Bachelor of Science Degree Program into a new online degree, beginning in May 2009.
The new Bachelor's degree will offer students the real world education that has defined Full Sail for the past 30 years as an educational leader in the entertainment industry. The program incorporates courses that teach students front-end web design, using both design and aesthetics techniques, along with the programming and coding skills they need to succeed in the industry.
In addition, students will complete a degree capstone where they will learn how to design and deploy a fully functioning, cross-platform website using industry-standard disciplines such as interface design and usability, web standards, client scripting and search engine optimization.
The fully featured online degree program is designed to give students the skills and experience needed to develop their careers in the industry. With the Internet's cultural prominence at an all-time high, the exciting field of web design and development is in need of individuals with the ability to not only design the websites, but also make them engaging and intuitive to use.
"The combination of front-end design and deployment techniques makes this online degree one of the most ambitious online web offerings out there," said Bill Bain, Web Design & Development Program Director. "Students are getting an incredible skill set in one program."
