San Diego, California (PressExposure) January 24, 2012 -- Students interested in working on both the front-and back-end development of websites can now learn the trade through a degree in web design and development at California College San Diego.
Although "web development" is an all-encompassing term for all the work that is involved in creating a web property, professionals within the industry refer to back-end development as the coding or programming that goes into building a website. It's this code, written by web developers, that serves the content of a website on a web browser.
Web design, on the other hand, refers to front-end development: planning and creating the visual aspects of a website. Web designers conceptualize, plan, produce, and present content on a web page. They decide on the graphic appearance of a web page, which includes the colors and layout.
The Bachelor's of Science in Web Design and Development at California College San Diego combines these two important elements of website creation. Consequently, the program includes courses in not just programming fundamentals and languages, but also the principles and tools of graphic design.
As part of their academic training, graduates learn topics such as web page design principles, Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, and animation, as well as programming fundamentals, web programming, mobile application development, Java, and more.
California College San Diego's degree program also seeks to develop critical thinking, communication, and other such career skills in graduates, which are important not only for survival in the modern-day corporate world but also advancement.
Graduates of this program qualify for entry- to mid-level jobs in website design and development, as well as in the exciting new fields of mobile applications, mobile portal design, rich Internet applications, etc.
Individuals interested in enrolling for this program must have a high school diploma or an equivalent GED credential. To kick-start the enrollment process, prospective students should schedule a personal visit to the college campus..
