Associate in Science/Associate in Applied Science

Internet Services Technology (WebMaster/Web Development) (2148)

Webmasters are the wizards of the World Wide Web. They are responsible for the performance, speed of access, form and function of a Web site. They design the overall link architecture, page contents, graphics and hyperlinks for information and ease of navigation. Webmasters code HTML pages, keep sites current and make certain all links are intact. They also coordinate previously unrelated company data and reveal new consumer profiles that can turn browsing into buying.

The Webmaster/Web Development program prepares you for this soaring career opportunity to design, develop, maintain, manage and administer comprehensive Web sites. Our relationship with Microsoft’s Developer Network Academic Alliance allows you to download a free, licensed copy of the operating systems, server and developer applications, and programming languages taught in your classes.

Two technical certificates are included as options within this degree program, Web Development Assistant and Web Development Specialist. Students may choose to pursue an A.S. or A.A.S. degree and earn technical certificates while completing the requirements for the degree, or pursue one or more certificate programs to develop or upgrade their skills in a particular field. Contact an advisor or counselor to determine the career education path that is best for you.

Florida Community College helps facilitate a 180-hour internship as part of your degree to provide work experience in Internet development.
