UF College of Journalism and Communications MAMC Specialization
Web Design and Online Communications
Students in the Web Design and Online Communications program learn principles and advanced techniques in Internet design and strategic communication as it applies to news, commerce and entertainment media. Students can begin the master’s degree or certificate program in the Fall, Spring and Summer terms.
The degree is taught entirely on-line and many courses, especially in the design sequence, feature live student-instructor interactions in Adobe Connect. This technology allows instructors and students to see and hear one another and share creative works.
The program is led by faculty members with extensive experience in the web design industry as well as in academic and theoretical research. Designed primarily as a part time program for professionals trained in traditional media professions, students may also enroll full time and complete the 37-credit degree in three terms, with a load of four courses per term, including a capstone project class. Students attending part time can choose two classes per term. In the graduate certificate program, students will complete four courses, all focused on web design.
