The growth of the Internet created an explosion of Web pages - both business and personal. With the need for updates and Web site redesigns, there is a continuing demand for professionals skilled in designing, developing, maintaining, and customizing Web pages.

A series of certifications, or "stackable certificates," ultimately build up to a Chancellor's Certificate. Each "stackable certificate" includes a badge that you can share on your LinkedIn profile and in your email signature. The key difference is that the smaller certificates include specific skills in the subject matter area, while a Chancellor's Certificate communicates mastery over broad themes. When you complete the requirements for your Chancellor's Certificate, UMSL issues you a printed copy of your credential with the Chancellor's signature that you can proudly display to your colleagues and family.

This Chancellor's Certificate program will provide you with the tools you need to create attractive and effective Web pages and understand modern web design.

You'll learn to:

  • Create consistent page designs throughout your site using a Web design program's style sheets and templates.
  • Use your knowledge of HTML and CSS code to quickly tweak your page design, even if you're using a GUI program or content management system to create your site.
  • Optimize images to improve your page design.
  • Use scripting to create interactivity and create special effects such as slideshows, rollover buttons, and navigation menu bars.
  • Understand the principles of responsive design and how to make your page viewable and attractive on all devices and screen sizes.


Note: You will receive CEUs for successful completion of each certificate class. The hours you complete in these classes can also be applied toward the 96-hour Chancellor's Certificate on the Computer.
