Web, Application and Technology Studies (WATS) provides a culturally-grounded approach to study the creation and reception of consumer and media technologies. Networked devices, applications and Websites provide a means to shape our world, and our students will guide the creation of these new tools. WATS offers flexible, timely courses that serve continuing education, degree completion, and professional development needs.

The Web Development Certificate is an intensive eight-course (40 credits) sequence designed to take students from Web User to Web Creator, preparing them for the role of Frontend Web Developer on a typical Web production team.
