MMC 6936 Web Design Principles 
4 credits
Tuesdays, Thursdays, 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

You will become proficient at creating, coding and posting basic HTML and CSS files to the Internet. Equipped with a historical understanding of the web's evolution and key industry-standard design guidelines to ensure strong online presentation, you will have a foundational knowledge of website creation and apply it to the planning, design and development of your own web page over the course of the semester. Critical thinking will be encouraged through your class interactions, projects, and online postings.
MMC 6936 Digital Imagery in Web Design
4 credits 
Tuesdays, Thursdays, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

This course will familiarize students with the development and impact of imagery in interactive media. Students will learn how visual "language" is the basis for developing contextual symbolic meanings that are shared throughout a culture. Semiotics, information design and persuasive communication will be explored in this course. Students will develop communicative images using their knowledge gained through lectures, discussions and Photoshop training.
This exciting opportunity is available for a limited time.
