The Web Page Authoring Technical Certificate program provides students with entry-level skills for a variety of jobs that require Web page creation. An emphasis is placed on design issues and the front-end of Web site design. The program prepares students to work in studio and corporate settings.
Many (but not all) of the courses are available via the Web, requiring students to attend campus only to take proctored exams. Online courses offer an asynchronous learning environment; students participate in class activities such as bulletin board discussions at different times of day and different days of the week. Weekly participation is required; the courses are not “self-paced.”
Graduates of the program should be able to:
- Write HTML markup and CSS rules to create a Web page with graphics and styled text;
- Create and incorporate graphics that have been optimized for speedy transmission;
- Design Web pages for ease of use and navigation;
- Upload Web site pages to a server; and
- Understand legal issues as they apply to the Web.
Web Page Authoring is an online program so students must have a computer and Internet access. Students are expected to have a basic familiarity with computers and the Web.

Students who are interested in this field may wish to consider a Visual Communications Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree from NSCC with a concentration in Web Design. Students may also apply all of the courses in this certificate toward NSCC’s A.A.S. degree in General Technology. A student that plans to apply the certificate toward an A.A.S. degree should consult his/her advisor about articulation options.
