The Web and Multimedia Design program is for students who want to learn how to design responsive websites. These are websites that restructure themselves depending on the device that they are viewed on to provide a better user experience. These students learn to code these websites using front-end scripting languages like HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The Web and App Development concentration in the MSIS program is for students who learn back-end coding and languages such as Java, C#, PHP, and SQL. These students learn to take the designs that the creative people made and develop programs that functionally achieve what the user requests.
