Yes, it’s true. As some of you may have heard we are hoping to begin offering a “concentration” or “track” in Web Development as part of the Graphic Design program here at Watkins. If everything goes well, before too long any Graphic Design major may opt to “concentrate” on Web Development. We’re still in the very early planning stages of working out all the details, so stay tuned and we’ll let you know as things develop.
This is great news and it’s been a long time coming. Web development, web design, interactive media, mobile app development, Flash design, all of this and more is a huge field right now and more and more employers are looking for skilled, educated graduates who can work in these areas. We want to take Watkins to the forefront of what colleges and universities are doing and make our school the place to come if you want to learn about Web Development. Who knows, maybe someday we’ll even have a complete Web Development Department!
