Q: What are the requirements for the Web Development Certificate?
To earn a certificate, students must successfully complete three of the following four courses: Website Development (INFO240), Advanced Web Development (INFO402), Programming in Java (INFO301), Technology Enhanced Business (INFO450). If you do not have a programming background – complete one of the two elective courses (Programming in Java or Web Site Development) prior to taking the two core courses. These will give you the necessary foundation of algorithmic/parametric methods of Web management.
