Web Development

Luther Burbank Art & Garden web project

 

The Web is clearly one of the most significant technological advances of the last 20 years, and you’re invited to learn more about it. Students who enroll in Web Development courses may train for a full- or part-time career, update skills for their current job, work to start their own Web-based business, or use their skills for personal enrichment. Whatever your educational goals, SRJC has courses that will meet your needs.

Two Web Development certificates are currently available: Web Fundamentals and Web Programmer. Both certificates share the same four core courses: Web Development 1, Web Development 2, Web Development 3, and Introduction to Social Media.

E-mail the Web Program Coordinator for further information.

The three-semester development course sequence concludes with CS 50C: Web Development 3: JavaScript, where an in-depth exploration of the JavaScript language focuses on shared libraries like jQuery and D3. The capstone to the certificate, CS 50.32: Web and Digital Media Projects allows students to work on a team as to develop a website for a local nonprofit organization.
