Web Content Developer Concentration (9251)

This program provides students with skills necessary to understand, use, and develop Internet services and resources. In addition, the program will help students become web developers who are responsible for the look and technical aspects of a web site. Students will create content-rich sites that use various forms of media as well as basic interactive programming techniques. Projects will emphasize business, home-office, and personal applications. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of web developers is projected to grow 15 percent through 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. The typical education needed to become a web developer is an associate degree; however, students have the option to continue their education by enrolling in four-year programs at local universities.
