From Training to Job Placement: The Path of a Web Developer at Touro College , Manhattan, New York

Web Development was ranked #9 of U.S. News 100 Best Jobs of 2013, and the career path is only projected to grow richer in opportunity and benefits by 2020. As the digital world takes increasing precedence in business and commerce, businesses both large and small are realizing the importance of having a clear and concise site.

Websites are the lifeblood of e-commerce and online communication. Two distinct skill sets are required to accomplish such a task. A web designer facilitates the client’s interests, products, and business specifications into a website that is attractive and easy to navigate. Then the web developer writes to code to make the website fully operational.

For the student with an undergraduate degree in computer science, graphic design, or digital media, Touro College Graduate School of Technology’s Masters of Arts in Web & Multimedia Design provides a clear path to a career as a web designer / developer.

The Web & Multimedia Design Program is an intensive program that enables students to combine both skill sets and become in essence a web developer / designer. This is accomplished by providing students with a well-rounded education that covers advertising, business concepts, and elements of design through courses such as:

  • WMM 600 Media and Culture
  • WMM 601 Multimedia Design
  • WMM 603 Designing for E-Commerce

Additionally, they learn to work with clients, conceive layouts & designs of a website, and become fluent in programming languages such as HTML and JavaScript through courses such as:

  • WMM 605 Web Programming I
  • WMM 606 Web Programming II
  • WMM 615 Programming for E-Commerce

Students who graduate from Touro College’s Master of Arts in Web & Multimedia Design enter the job market prepared to work and create beautiful and robust websites that are easily navigated. Students who successfully completed the program are sought after candidates for careers as full-time employees, consultants and / or contractual freelancers.
