Web & Multimedia Technology

In the Web and Multimedia Technology Program, students learn about the planning, production and mechanical development, information structure, and visual design of websites. This program provides training for a variety of careers including Web designer, webmaster, Web developer, and multimedia artist. HCC’s program is one of the few on the east coast that teaches design and development under its own designator. Other colleges teach either design (e.g., HTML, CSS, and Photoshop) or development (e.g., PHP, MySQL, and JavaScript), but, at HCC, students learn the art of design and the science of programming at the same time.
