Why Choose NPC's Web Development Program?
With the phenomenal growth of the Internet has come an equally astounding rise in the career fields of Web graphic design and Web page development. While the major driving force behind Web page expansion has been e-commerce, it is now the rare institution, association, business or group that doesn't have a Web page to tell the world about itself. In this rapidly expanding digital world, those organizations are looking for someone to provide them with polished, professional websites.
Take advantage of this great career opportunity by earning an NPC degree or certificate in Web Development and Graphic Design.
About Our Program
The NPC Computer Information Systems program offers you several options in the ever-growing fields of Web Development and Graphic Design. NPC's Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree and Certificate of Applied Science (CAS) combine both areas to help launch your Web career.
The Web Development and Graphic Design AAS prepares you for tasks ranging from simple page building and web graphic manipulation to the methodologies used for systems analyses and design in the increasingly complex world of e-commerce.
All design and development degrees and certificates include credit hours devoted to creating your professional portfolio.
For those gifted with artistic talent, a Web design career offers you a good income while putting that talent to work. According to www.salary.com (4/2015) a Web Designer I earns a median salary of $63,621 per year in the Phoenix area. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics lists the median annual salary for a print graphic designer at $46,350 (SOC 27.1024)
If you are a creative person with technical aptitude, a career in the more technically specialized field of website development can pay handsomely. With a degree and a few years of experience, Web developer salaries average more than $70,570 a year (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, May 2015. SOC 15.1134).
