Online Web Design & Development Courses

At Champlain College Online we design our online programs for working adults, and there's nowhere this is more evident than in our curricula. The online Associate Degree in Web Design & Development is composed of professional courses, web design courses, web development courses, and general education courses that provide foundational knowledge and immediate take-aways that can be applied on the job. These courses are focused, relevant, and most are delivered in an accelerated 7-week format.  (Note: Select courses are 15 weeks long. Due to the complex nature of the content of some courses, the courses cannot be condensed into 7-week sessions. Your individual time to degree completion will be dependent on a number of factors including: total credits transferred in, test-out credits earned, number of classes taken each semester, and whether you are continuously enrolled.)

Earn a Certificate Along the Way

In addition, we've designed this program so that as you work your way through the curriculum and complete the online web design and web development courses, you'll earn a certificate in one of the following areas of specialization before you've earned your degree: Web Programming or PHP Programming.
