web_design_center_1_837x470If you’re a young international student looking around for a good web design degree, one of your best options is to study web design & development at Full Sail University. Full Sail’s web design & development program is a well-rounded, 21-month program that awards graduates a Bachelor of Science degree.

Web design & development at Full Sail University is based around a handful of core concepts, the first of which is interface design and usability. This is a good place to start as knowledge of this subject builds off the understanding international students already have of the internet – namely interacting with websites. Full Sail’s web design & development program will teach you how to create websites that make user interaction efficient and fun.

Web design & development at Full Sail University will then move into web standards, which refer to the guidelines set by the World Wide Web Consortium to keep websites looking consistent across multiple browsers and devices (desktop computers, tablets, mobile phones). Web standards courses will still have a strong focus on design, since the overall goal is to make sites look and function the same across these multiple platforms.

As it moves into more advanced coursework, Full Sail’s web design & development program will cover more intensive areas of focus like interactivity and dynamic back-end development. Interactivity, like most of the focus areas before it, revolves around the user experience, as it covers more advanced techniques like adding complex combinations of sound, video, effects, and so on to create a more engaging experience for your user. Dynamic back-end development, on the other hand, focuses mostly on the operations behind the scenes – creating the systems that facilitate interaction between the user’s browser and the servers that keep the website running.

At the end of your time in web design & development at Full Sail University comes a final project. Unsurprisingly, this project involves planning and creating a website from start to finish. Your professors will guide you with every step and listen to a final presentation from you as you proudly display your new addition to the internet!

Studying web design & development at Full Sail University is a great way to get your career off the ground, so check it out and see if it’s right for you!
