Web Design & Development Bachelor's Degree

At Champlain College we design our online programs for working adults, and there's nowhere this is more evident than in our curricula. The Web design & development associate and bachelor's programs are comprised of both professional and general education courses that provide foundational knowledge and immediate take-aways that can be applied on the job.

Whether it's PHIL 340, Ethics in the Professions, that will help you to formulate arguments, practice deliberation and assess the implications of decisions across your organization or WEBD 225, Web Page Development II - CSS & XML, where you will learn how to expand the horizons of the Web page to fully utilize functionality provided by the browser, you will find courses that are focused, relevant, and delivered in an accelerated 7-week format.  

In addition, we've designed this program so you can earn a certificate in a chosen area of specialization in web development before you've earned your degree. Talk to your academic advisor for more details.
